Teeling Whiskey Company Looks To Boost US Presence Following Deal
Published on Jan 9 2014 5:19 PM in Drinks
The Teeling Whiskey Company have appointed Infinium Spirits as their exclusive importer in the US. Infinium specialise in the premium and ultra-premium spirits industry.
The American market for Irish whiskey is the fastest growing in the world, with sales of 2.2m cases in 2012, meaning it is now a larger category than Scottish single malts. Sales of Irish whiskey have risen more than 400% since 2002, with further growth of more than 20% expected over the coming years.
Jack Teeling, founder of the Teeling Whiskey Company, commented, “We are delighted to be able to partner with Infinium Spirits on launching our Teeling Whiskey brand in the US market.
“Given the importance of the US for any Irish whiskey we took our time selecting our importer and believe we have found a like-minded family-owned partner to take advantage of the opportunity for our unique expressions of Irish whiskey. We look forward to working with the Infinium team and getting our Teeling whiskey on back bars and shelves in the US.”
