Teeling Whiskey Distillery based in Dublin has released their first limited edition in the Wonders of Wood (WOW) Series: The Wonders of Wood Single Pot Still whiskey. The WOW Series is part of the distillery’s mission to push the boundaries of flavor through the use of innovative unique styles of wood in the maturation of Teeling whiskey.
Wonders of Wood (WOW) create a balance between the spicy taste and lovely aroma of the malt with the influence from the wood and the cask.
The new single pot still Teeling whiskey first edition is crafted from a recipe of 50% malted barley and 50% un-malted barley. After the fermentation, the fermented mash is triple-distilled in the Teeling Whiskey Distillery in Dublin and then fully matured in virgin Chinkapin American White Oak barrels.
“Wood is an amazing, sustainable, and environmentally friendly material that plays a huge role in developing the flavor and character of a whiskey as it matures. While it was important to ensure each release of our new WOW series lives up to our world-class reputation and to help us expand the growing premium single pot still category of Irish whiskeys, we also wanted to ensure we gave something back to our local environment. As such, we were delighted when the Tree Council of Ireland partnered with us to allow us to do our part in helping the replanting of our native Irish forests.”By Jack Teeling, founder and managing director of Teeling Whiskey

Every bottle sold of the new Wonders of Wood Single Pot Still whiskey will go towards planting exclusively native Irish trees in the distillery’s designated acre of land in Glencree, County Wicklow.
