My guest for this episode is, Jack Teeling, founder and managing director of Teeling Whiskey. Teeling comes from a family long associated with Irish whiskey. From Walter Teeling in 1782 who set up a distillery on Marrowbone Lane in Dublin to John Teeling who founded Cooley Distillery in 1987, the first Irish whiskey distillery to be establish in Ireland in over 100 years.
Teeling has over 10 years experience in the Irish whiskey industry having previously held the roles of commercial manager, sales and marketing director and latterly managing director with Cooley Distillery. During his time as Cooley’s MD the company experienced sales growth of over 85%. Cooley Distillery was sold to Beam in January 2012 for $95m.
In January 2014, Teeling and his brother Stephen announced plans to open a new €10m distillery in the Liberties, with the creation of over 30 jobs.
Teeling holds an MSc in International Business (TCD), a MBS in Finance (Smurfit Business School) and a Bachelor’s Degree in Commerce from UCD.
