Teeling Whiskey, Ireland’s leading progressive Irish whiskey, is extremely proud to announce that its Dublin distilled Single Pot Still has claimed the prestigious title of the “World’s Best Single Pot Still” at the 2022 World Whiskies Awards (WWA). This success follows on from Teeling Whiskey achieving the pinnacle of “World’s Best Single Malt” at these awards in 2019. To ensure the celebrations went long into the night, Rob Caldwell, Teeling Whiskey’s Global Brand Ambassador, was chosen as the “World’s Best Irish Brand Ambassador” for all his efforts in educating and representing Teeling and Irish Whiskey around the world over the last four years.
By winning, this second “World’s Best” title Teeling Whiskey has again made history as the first whiskey to be honoured across two different categories. Teeling Whiskey received the award at the exclusive 2022 World Whiskies Awards ceremony held in the Honourable Artillery Company in London on Thursday 24th March 2022.
Speaking on the award win, Jack Teeling, Founder and Managing Director of Teeling Whiskey said; “Since reviving our old family trademark of Teeling Whiskey back in 2012, we have endeavoured to make sure every bottle of Irish whiskey is of the highest quality. To be honoured once as the World Best Single Malt back in 2019 felt like a pinnacle of all our efforts. However, being honoured as the World’s Best for the second time, this time for our Dublin distilled Single Pot Still against well-established competitors who have dominated the Single Pot Still category, has proven our new distillery is world class. Dublin and Teeling Whiskey are now right back at the top table of global whiskey and we look forward to continuing to lead this new golden era for Irish whiskey.”
