This month, Lobby Lounge at InterContinenal Hong Kong resident mixologist Sabrina Cantini-Budden has sourced award-winning Teeling Whiskey for her cocktail creations.
Soak in the harbour views at Lobby Lounge as you unwind over cocktails showcasing this artisanal and award-winning distillery from Ireland. Since 1782, the Teeling family have been crafting Irish whiskey. In 1782, Walter Teeling set up a craft distillery on Marrowbone Lane in The Liberties area of Dublin, commencing a 230-year-old tradition of distilling for the Teeling family. The latest generation of Teelings, Jack and Stephen, now carry on the family legacy with the Teeling Distillery, established in 2015 as the first new distillery in Dublin in over 125 years. It is located a stone’s throw from their ancestral distillery in the heart of the Golden Triangle, Dublin’s historic distilling district.
Sabrina has chosen this distillery for her cocktail creations, explaining, “The essence of a cocktail lies in the spirit. For our new artisanal cocktails, I have sourced the flagship Irish whiskey in the Teeling family.”
The Teeling Whiskey used for the new cocktails is made with hand-selected casks, which are given an additional 6–9 months further maturation in ex-rum barrels in order to impart the extra character and distinctly smooth flavour unique to Irish whiskey. Bottling at 46% with no-chill filtration completes the creation of an Irish whiskey of true character.
Sabrina has created five cocktails with Teeling Whiskey. For further details, please click here.
