Two of the Teeling Whiskey Company brands were honoured with the accolade of the "World's Best" at the 2014 World Whiskies Awards held in London last night.
The Teeling Single Grain Irish Whiskey was awarded the title of "World's Best Grain Whiskey" and the Teeling 21YO Single Malt Silver Reserve was awarded the title of "World's Best Irish Single Malt Whiskey".
First held in 2007, the World Whiskies Awards, run by Whiskey Magazine, search for the very best whiskies in the world. This year's competition saw more than 300 whiskies put through their paces with three rounds of rigorous tastings, to win the coveted title of the "World's Best".
Established in 2012, the Teeling Whiskey Company has also received Gold Medals and honours at the International Wine & Spirits Competition, International Spirits Challenge and the Irish Whiskey Masters.
Jack Teeling, founder of the Teeling Whiskey Company, commented, "We are very proud of the whiskeys we have launched over the last two years and we are humbled to receive such recognition at one of the biggest awards in the whiskey world. These awards give us confidence to continue to launch innovative expressions of Irish whiskey driving choice within the Irish whiskey category."
