Teeling Whiskey will be celebrating St Patrick’s Day this year with a vast selection of festivities at its award-winning distillery from 10th to 18th March.  For these eight days, Teeling Whiskey Distillery will be ‘going green’, meaning that it is one of a number of selected Dublin buildings scheduled to undergo a green themed redesign.


However, the highlight of the week comes in the form of the Craft Fair on Saturday 18th March. The distillery will play host to a vast selection of events, some of which will hosted by other brands due to the attendance of some of Ireland’s most intriguing artisan producers.


Food company and RTÉ’s ‘Taste of Success’ runner up Currabinny will be joining William Murray and James Kavanagh to make a return to the fair with an assortment of flavorful dishes. Delish Melish will also be on site to entice visitors with its very own world of marshmallow and meringue. Another attendee is Graham Herterich, aka the The Cupcake Bloke, and he will be serving up his signature bakes to guests of the fair. And in case this wasn’t all sweet enough so far, this is all free to attend!


Speaking about the attendance of the Craft Fair, Marketing Manager for the Teeling Whiskey brand & distillery Rebecca Bell said: “We’re hoping to attract everyone and anyone with an interest in Irish produce. It’s free for all and there’s something for everyone here on the day. We attracted over 1,000 people to our Christmas Craft Fair. We’re growing at every opportunity and are hoping to surpass that number again this March 18th.”


Of course, it wouldn’t be worthwhile distillery outing without a glass in hand, and so the Teeling Whiskey team will be close by throughout the day with a sample selection of delicately fashioned cocktails. Not only Teeling, but a range of various craft breweries will be making their produce available, including Dot Brew, Hope Brewery and Wood Key Brewing.


To top the trip off and the drinks up, free storytelling sessions will take place in the Teeling Whiskey Distillery Alchemy Room. The talks will consist of stories about the local Newmarket area, as well as Food and Drink panels discussing the challenges and opportunities for Irish craft producers.
Ms Bell came up with the concept for the fair and organises each of them. When asked about what the main attraction of the whole fair is for most people, Ms Bell said: “We’ve confirmed some of the best artisan producers in the business, coupled with our new series of talks in our Alchemy Room, Teeling Whiskey Cocktails and a host of craft beer producers, what’s not to love!”
