Sales and Marketing Director at Teeling Whiskey

Hosted by Eanna Ryan, Teeling Whiskey Portfolio Manager

Friday, February 9th, 2018

7:00pm - 9:30pm

One of the biggest growth markets in the world is Irish whiskey and SCWC is proud to have special guest, Stephen Teeling present his family's line of fine whiskey in Los Angeles. This educational event will include appetizers served before the presentation. The Teeling trinity range (Small Batch, Single Grain, and Single Malt) along with some other special surprises will be sampled.



Stephen Teeling, sales and marketing director at Teeling Whiskey is the entrepreneurial son of the legendary John Teeling, the founder of Cooley Distillery. The two brothers are running Teeling Whiskey; Stephen is the sales and marketing director and Jack is the managing director.


Teeling Distillery is an Irish whiskey distillery established in Dublin in 2015. It is the first new whiskey distillery to have opened in Dublin in over 125 years. Now, six generations later, a new pair of Teelings have built a craft distillery in the same neighborhood. The phoenix rising from the pot in the logo symbolizes the rebirth of the Teeling Whiskey brand as it forges a new future for Dublin and Irish whiskey.

Teeling Whiskey Portfolio Manager, Eanna Ryan will also be with us for this special event.
