Whisky is a passion to explore. From the history of the spirit to the evolution of the industry, the story of whisky helps fuel that passion. Often, it’s easy to forget that whisky is also a global multibillion dollar industry. The stories of whisky — from news and new releases to in-depth inquires and what goes on behind the label — blend together to help us appreciate the spirit of whisky.

Teeling Whiskey Company has released The Gathering, a special 11-year-old single malt whiskey, at The Loop’s travel retail shops in Dublin and Cork airports to commemorate the event.

Just 1,000 bottles will be available. The whiskey was matured for more than 11 years in ex-Bourbon casks, then bottled at 46% ASV with no chill-filtration. It is available starting today at a price of €69.95 ($92.50 USD) in the Irish Whiskey Collection shops at both airports.

The Irish Whiskey Collection shops offer a range of whiskies from all of Ireland’s whiskey producers, along with exclusive bottlings like The Gathering. Travelers flying through either airport can pre-order in advance and pick up their whiskies on landing.
