We love Irish whiskey all year round, but in the run-up to St. Patrick’s Day we rarely reach for anything else. So we were thrilled to team up with Teeling Whiskey Company to offer one lucky winner a super-duper, one-of-a-kind 1991 single cask decanter to mark the 2018 occasion!

Up for grabs was a specially-created-just-for-you decanter of Teeling Irish Whiskey, hand-drawn by Teeling master distiller Alex Chasko from a 1991 cask he’d personally selected. Not only would the decanter bear Chasko’s signature, but the label would also carry the winner’s name. Exciting indeed!

Funnily enough, we had LOADS of interest in this competition. One-of-a-kind personalised decanters don’t grow on trees, after all. And it’s even more exciting when you know the whiskey inside will be incredible!

Well. The time has come to announce the winner. We can reveal the lucky recipient of that incredible decanter is… Roysten Lee!

Enormous congrats to Roysten, and thanks to everybody else who threw their hat into the ring. Let’s do it again for another wonderful whisk(e)y competition soon!

Wondering what all the Teeling chat is all about? Teeling is leading the ‘new-wave’ Irish whiskey charge. The brand identifies as a ‘progressive’ Irish whiskey maker, a claim backed up by its strong focus on innovative production methods and a penchant for cask finishing. And when Teeling opened its own distillery in Dublin in 2015, its position in the flourishing Irish whiskey sector was cemented!

Fancy finding out more about the distillery? We caught up with Alex Chasko himself in the run-up to St Patrick’s Day, read all about it here!
