The Teeling family have launched Teeling Whiskey - a small batch blend of malt and grain whiskey - in time for St Patrick’s Day.

According to the Teelings - who sold Cooley Distillery and the Kilbeggan brand to Beam - the whiskey has a “higher than normal composition of first fill bourbon barrels and higher than usual ratio of malt to grain.”

The blend is further matured in ex-rum barrels and bottled at 46% with no colouring or chill filtration.

The company is also to launch a Poitín – a clear, non-aged Irish spirit famous for its alcohol strength. The product is 61.5% abv.
