The Teeling Whiskey Distillery, Dublin’s first new distillery in over 125 years, opened its doors to the public in June of this year. Just four months on, they have won their first award “Experience of the Year” as accredited by the highly acclaimed, Luxury Travel Guide.
The Luxury Travel Guide Awards represent the pinnacle of travel and tourism achievements, championing the best ‘visitor focused’ companies and organisations in the industry. Each year the Luxury Travel Guide Awards are broken down into regions to coincide with the release of the respective Luxury Travel Guide. All winners of the Luxury Travel Guide Awards are subject to the same rigorous assessment criteria, carried out by in-house professionals. This ensures only the most deserving organisations are granted an accolade and gain a place in the eagerly anticipated award winner’s guide.
On the 5th of September, the distillery celebrated another milestone, welcoming the 10,000th visitor since first opening its doors four months ago. The distillery, which is currently the only operational distillery in Dublin, has swiftly proven to be a must-see attraction for tourists from across the globe and local whiskey enthusiasts alike.
Speaking about the distillery’s success over the last few months, Jack Teeling, founder of the Teeling Whiskey Company commented, “We are thrilled to have won an award for Best Experience of the year. This is a fantastic achievement for us, especially considering that the distillery has only been open to the public for the last four months. A year ago, we were only breaking ground on the distillery so we’re extremely proud of what our hardworking team have produced in such a short time.”
The Teeling Whiskey Distillery and visitor centre is located at 17 Newmarket, Dublin 8, and is open 7 days a week. To find out more information on the Teeling Whiskey Distillery or to make a booking, visit www.teelingwhiskey.com
