The Teeling Whiskey Company continues to shine on the international stage having just picked up four top accolades at the first stage of the World Whiskies Awards.

The World Whiskies Awards are Whisky Magazine’s product awards honouring the very best whiskies in the world. The Teeling Whiskey Company triumphed in three categories with its single grain, single malt, 24-year old single malt and ‘The Revival’ 15-year old single malt all scooping top honours. It will now go on to compete at the next stage of the competition for the global title.

As well as leading the way on the international spirits market, Teeling Whiskey Company has also been nominated in the entrepreneurial category at the 8th annual Financial Times Arcelor Mittal Boldness in Business Awards. Previous winners of the entrepreneurship category include Softbank, Tullow Oil and Google.

Jack Teeling, founder of the Teeling Whiskey Company said: “We are delighted to see that our commitment to quality and innovation within Irish whiskey continues to be acknowledged on the world stage. As we strive to bring an independent voice back into a category dominated by multinationals, it is very rewarding that such a prestigious publication such as the Financial Times has recognised our efforts and we look forward to March 17th when the overall winners of the World Whiskies Award and the FT Boldness in Business Awards will be announced.”
