It’s only appropriate to spend March 17 with the real deal. Enjoy these five splendid Irish whiskey cocktails from Teeling Irish Whiskey. You’ll be carrying on traditions from 1782 when the Teeling Family started crafting their spirit.

Walter Teeling set up a craft distillery on Marrowbone Lane in the Liberties area of Dublin. Today, Jack and Stephen Teeling are carrying on the family’s legacy and forging a bright new future for distilling in Dublin.

The Teeling Whiskey Distillery is the first new distillery in Dublin in over 125 years and will bring the craft of distilling back into the very heart of Dublin city centre. Located in an ancient market square called Newmarket, an area long associated with brewing and distilling, the new distillery is a three copper pot still operation reviving the traditional style of Dublin whiskey distillation.

The distillery is open for visitors allowing you to come see, smell and experience Teeling whiskey. To make the day even more special, memorize some quaint and humorous authentic Irish toasts.
