Nothing's Virgin Here

Teeling Whiskey X Irish Whiskey X Renaissance Vintage Reserve Collection: Renaissance Series 4

The Dublin-based Teeling Whiskey Makers and Master distiller Alex Chasko, are back with another innovative Irish whiskey. The recent launch is the fourth expression of the Vintage Reserve Collection- Renaissance Series 4. 

The fourth expression in the Renaissance series is followed by the first three award-winning releases, which earned gold awards at both the 2020 International Wine and Spirits Competition and the 2020 Irish Whiskey Masters.

“Here at Teeling Whiskey, we are renowned for our vision in doing things differently. Our Whiskeys embody this unconventional spirit with innovation at the core of everything we do. For us, it’s what’s inside the bottle that counts – we let the liquid do the talking, and our liquid has plenty to say.”

By The Distillery

The Teeling Renaissance series in the Vintage Collection celebrates the beginning of a new chapter in Irish Whiskey’s new Golden Era. The distillery is proud to present a limited series of Single Malt whiskies, celebrating the very best Teeling Whiskey has to offer.

The fourth Renaissance expression is the 18-Year-Old Single Malt that was aged initially in ex-bourbon barrels for over 16 years before being finished in high-quality ex-red Pineau des Charentes fortified wine casks. This imparts pressed grape and candied dried fruit flavors of apricot and pineapple character to the whisky. The bottling of the fourth edition is limited to just 9,000 bottles. The Single Malt is then bottled at 46% with no chill filtration for natural True character.

“We are honored to be launching the fourth release of our award-winning Renaissance Series,” “These releases are a celebratory bottling series that mark the true renaissance of Dublin as the epicenter for world-class, city-based whiskey distillation. These whiskeys have established themselves as the golden standard of Irish single malts over the last two years.”

Jack Teeling, Founder and Managing Director of Teeling Whiskey, said in a prepared statement.

“With one eye on the past, but looking to the future, we’re the new generation of Dublin distillers. We approach our craft with a respect for generations passed but with the confidence to forge the next chapter of Irish, Dublin and Teeling Whiskey.”

Stephen Teeling, the Co-Founder of Teeling Whiskey announced in a prepaid statement.
