The Teeling Whiskey Distillery is the only operational distillery in Dublin City

I recently became a tourist in my own city and visited the new Teeling Distillery in Newmarket Square.
This is the first new distillery in Dublin in over 125 years and is a great interactive experience for whiskey fans.
The Teeling Whiskey Distillery is the only operational distillery in Dublin City where visitors can get up close and personal with the traditional Irish whiskey making process.
We went for the Teeling Trinity Tasting which meant we were going to sample the brands Small Batch, Single Grain and Single Malt offerings at the end of the tour. Mmmmm, something to look forward to.
All guided tours are given by Teeling Whiskey Ambassadors and take between 45 minutes and an hour.
Our tour guide was well informed, engaging and had plenty of interesting anecdotes.
The tour itself involves a walk through the exhibition area, detailing the history of Irish whiskey from the very beginning, to where it is today.
From the exhibition space, the tour then ventures to the inner workings of the distillery where visitors can experience the heat and sweet smell from the stills and witness the whiskey making process first hand.
Visitors can see into the barrels to understand the process as it happens, every stage from grain to whiskey.
The area is small but I certainly felt like Charlie in the Chocolate Factory and was impressed by the large copper stills and sheer touching distance of the process.
The tour doesn’t end there. We were then guided into The Bang Bang Bar, where we got to taste Teeling Whiskey.
My personal favourite and supposedly a favourite among women was the Small Batch, although I found most men plumping for this on the day also. The single malt was a firm favourite too.
There is also a cafe and shop where you can buy the whiskey at a cheaper rate than it sells in stores around Dublin.
The Teeling Whiskey Distillery and visitor centre at 17 Newmarket, Dublin 8, is open seven days a week.
Visitors can now access the distillery via the Hop-On Hop-Off Bus, getting off at stop 12A.
Visitors can simply walk in or pre-booked tours are available on TeelingWhiskey.com.
