Maverick Drinks to distribute Teeling Irish whiskey

03 December, 2018

Dublin distillery Teeling has named Maverick Drinks as its UK distributor which will be effective from the new year.

Having been founded in March 2015 by Jack and Stephen Teeling, the new distillery was the first in Dublin for more than 125 years. 

The Irish whiskey brand now produces up to 500,000 litres of spirit every year with Alex Chasko acting as master distiller.

“Maverick Drinks are best placed to evolve our business in the UK market for the years to come,” said Jack Teeling.

The brand’s core range features three varieties; its Small Batch Whiskey, finished in Central American rum casks, its Single Grain which is aged in red wine casks and its Single Malt expression.

All three whiskies, alongside the full range of products from Teeling, will join the Maverick Drinks portfolio and are available to UK partners from 1 January 2019. 

Michael Vachon, head of brand development at Maverick Drinks, added: "Teeling is exactly the kind of brand we are always looking for. It has everything - great design, extraordinary value, wonderful people, a real link to the community, and delicious, award-winning liquid.”

Talking the challenges of cocktail weeks

Having recently returned from the US visiting both Oakland and Arizona Cocktail Weeks I was amazed by the differences in approach. In Oakland there was a much bigger trade focus and it felt more relaxed, whereas in Arizona it was one massive party for consumers.
