Dublin’s Teeling Distillery has announced the launch of Teeling Whiskey Explorers Edition Irish whiskey 12YO, exclusively with UK airport retailer World Duty Free.
On sale from 3 July 2019 in a limited release of only 6,000 bottles, Teeling Whiskey Explorers Edition 12 YO Irish whiskey is exclusively available at World Duty Free airport stores in the UK, in a 70cl bottle gift pack, priced at £81.50.
Teeling Master Distiller, Alex Chasko, has hand-selected a blend of 12 YO casks of malt and grain Irish whiskeys, with further maturation in ex cognac casks, renowned for their distinctive flavour and rich character. The whiskey is bottled at 46% with no chill filtration, a signature of all Teeling whiskeys.
This is the first Teeling exclusive created for global travel retail, a landmark launch that signifies the importance of the channel to the brand’s development on the global stage and its growing appeal to an international audience of whiskey lovers.
The launch will be highlighted on World Duty Free consumer media channels, reaching travellers at key touch-points on their journey through the airport, culminating in the opportunity for in-store tastings.

The Teeling family is renowned for its vision in doing things differently. The opening of the Teeling Whiskey Distillery in 2015 marked a new chapter in the history of Dublin whiskey distilling, firmly putting both Dublin and Teeling Whiskey at the forefront of a new wave of distilleries, driving new golden era for Irish whiskey.
