Speaking about the win, Jack Teeling, founder of the Teeling Whiskey Company said that they were honoured by the win.
‘This is a fantastic achievement for us in light of the increasing competition and is testament to the unique distillery experience we offer visitors to Dublin,’ he said.
The Teeling Whiskey Distillery is one of the country’s hottest destinations for whiskey fans in Ireland. Located in the heart of Dublin, in the historic Liberties, it is the first new distillery in Dublin for over 125 years.
It opened in 2015 and has welcomed over 500,000 visitors to date. Despite being relatively young, the distillery has won over 20 International Honours for their visitor experience.
‘We’re extremely proud of our hardworking team and what we have achieved over the last four years,’ Jack says.
In 2019, Teeling won multiple awards including Lisa Jameson’s win for ‘Visitor Attraction Manager of the Year’ at the Icons of Whisky Awards in November, a Gold Medal at the 2019 Distillery Awards run by the Spirits Magazine, The Award for Excellence at the 2019 Travel and Hospitality Awards and receiving for the 4th year in a row, a Certificate for Excellence from TripAdvisor.
