Tonight, in honour of St Patrick’s Day, we’re celebrating at our bar & storefront on 80 Mohamed Sultan Road #01-10 with the quintessential Irish Whiskey.
Did you know?
Dublin distillers successfully lobbied to have an “e” added to “whiskey” to differentiate Dublin Whiskey from perceived interior alternative Irish & Scottish whisky producers.
In the 19th century, Irish Whiskey ruled the world, and Dublin Whiskey was king. The seal of Dublin on the bottle was synonymous with quality & craft. Though distilling (sanctioned or illicit) has been part of Dublin since its foundation, it was only after the Huguenot artisans arrival in the 17th century that the seeds of a craft began growing into a vibrant industry.
Being located on the cusp of the British Empire, with ample water and access to barley from neighbouring farmlands allowed the distilleries to multiply and flourish, especially as the Industrial Revolution took hold. Thus emerged an area that became known as The Golden Triangle: with three giant Dublin distilleries at its points.
Using a unique base of malted & unmalted barley, and triple distilled in pot stills for purity, no corners were cut as it lay to age, and this bold and unique Spirit of Dublin flowed from the 3 corners of the Golden Triangle, to the 4 corners of the world. However, at the dawn of the 20th century, a reluctance to move with new production techniques left Dublin distillers in the wake of the Scottish, and a bitter struggle to form an independent nation, alongside with the US prohibition devastated the Irish Whiskey industry, almost overnight.
In 1976, the last distillery of the first golden era of Dublin Whiskey ran dry. However, Irish Whiskey has proven its resilience. Brought to the brink of near extinction, now, a new generation of whiskey distillers are back, with Teeling leading the charge as the first new distillery in Dublin in over 125 years.
