Teeling Releases Final Bottling In Renaissance Series, Finished In Calvados Casks

Teeling has unveiled the fifth and final bottling of its Renaissance series. The range of 18-Year-Old Irish Single Malts launched in 2019 and was created to celebrate the true global Renaissance of Teeling, Dublin, and Irish whiskey. The fifth and final Renaissance Series bottling is finished in ex-Calvados casks

The fifth bottling of The Renaissance Series consists of 18-Year-Old Single Malt that was aged initially in ex-Bourbon barrels for over 12 years before being finished in high quality, ex-Calvados casks for over 6 years. This dual maturation and, in the particularly long finishing time in the Calvados casks, imparts a depth of cinnamon and caramelized apple character, with dried cherries and woody tannin notes. Limited to just 9,000 bottles, the resulting Single Malt is then bottled at 46% ABV with no chill filtration.

“Like all good things, the Renaissance Series must come to an end,” said Jack Teeling, Founder and Managing Director of Teeling Whiskey. “These limited edition Teeling Whiskeys really lived up to their name, as they have been enjoyed and celebrated all over the world including winning some of the top honors for Irish whiskey at International Spirits Competitions over the last few years. For the final release we have hand selected some of our very best 18-Year-Old Single Malt to make sure we end this award-winning series on a high note.  We can end this series knowing that the Renaissance of Dublin as the epicenter for world-class, city based whiskey distillation is now firmly re-established with our Dublin distilled Irish whiskey now being celebrated and enjoyed around the world.”

Bottled in a unique tall decanter bottle, the Irish whiskey is priced at €140 per 70cl bottle. The Renaissance 18-Year-Old Single Malt will be available in Ireland at the Teeling Whiskey Distillery in Dublin 8, The Celtic Whiskey Shop, Irishmalts.com, Shannon Airport, and premium independent Irish off licenses as well as being rolled out to key International Markets such as the Belgium, UK, Holland, France, Denmark, Italy, Russia, and select Asian markets.

Previous editions of the Renaissance series include bottlings finished in ex-red Pineau des Charentes casks, ex-Muscat wine casks, and ex-Australian Shiraz wine casks.
