Teeling Whiskey and Umbrella London have teamed up to release two new limited edition collaborative products: the Umbrella London Ginger Beer finished Teeling Whiskey, and a Teeling Whiskey finished Umbrella London Ginger Beer. The duo will also release a Teeling Whiskey X Umbrella London gift set for Christmas 2020. The collaborative products are both world firsts.
In partnership with Umbrella London, Teeling’s Master Distiller hand selected casks of the team’s finest Ginger Beer to create a truly unique Irish Whiskey. Each cask was used to marry Teeling’s own Small Batch Whiskey, capturing the natural flavors of ginger, rich molasses and subtle hints of malt, delicately finished with a hint of lasting spice. The Whiskey is bottled at 46% with no chill filtration completing a whiskey of true character.
To create the Ginger Beer, Umbrella London’s Head Brewer Matt Armitage rested 500 litres of Ginger Beer in two used Teeling former Bourbon hogshead barrels for two years, before carbonating and canning the liquid. Once emptied, these barrels were then shipped back to the Teeling Distillery in Dublin to be refilled with Teeling Whiskey and rested for nine months to create the alcoholic (5.5%) the Whiskey. The result is something wholly unique, with notes of fresh ginger, tobacco and molasses offering a long and spicy finish with coffee and chocolate.
Both the Whiskey and the Ginger Beer, will be available to purchase online via Umbrella London distributed in the UK by Maverick, alongside a bespoke gift set curated for the collaboration featuring a bottle of Whiskey, two cans of Whiskey finished Ginger Beer, Umbrella London’s original Ginger Beer, two tumblers with coasters from The Sun Tavern, making for the ultimate Christmas gift for whiskey aficionados.
