This week's guests on Spirits of Whisk(e)y are Jack and Stephen Teeling—brothers who revived a storied name in Irish whiskey history and now stand at the forefront of the Irish whiskey renaissance, releasing one distinctive whiskey after another, including the eagerly anticipated Blackpitts, the distillery's first peated expression. Managing Director Jack and Sales & Marketing Director Stephen, after pursuing business careers abroad, returned to their native Ireland and established the Teeling Whiskey Company in 2012, opening the first operational distillery in the city of Dublin in over 125 years. Listen and learn how Jack and Stephen, together with American-born Master Distiller Alex Chasko, created a brand—the logo of which prominently features the mythological phoenix—that helped a name, a tradition, and a city rise from the economic ashes of the Great Recession. Plus get Chef Louise Leonard's tips for pairing and cooking with Teeling's rum-barrel-finished Small Batch expression.
