Teeling Whiskey has signed a gas and renewable electricity supply deal with Vayu Energy for €250,000.
The agreement will see Vayu supply Teeling Whiskey with natural gas and 100pc green electricity to meet its energy requirements for its newly opened distillery in Dublin’s Newmarket Square in The Liberties.
Co-owned by brothers Jack and Stephen Teeling, the Teeling Whiskey Company was founded in 2012.
Jack Teeling, founder and managing director, said the company takes a hands-on approach.
“As a local craft producer, environmental sustainability is at the heart of our business model and expansion strategy.
“Not only does the deal provide our business with significant cost benefits through direct access to wholesale energy prices, but we are partnering with a company that has demonstrated a deep understanding and expertise of Ireland’s energy market.”
Pictured at yesterday’s announcement were Jack Teeling, Stephen Behan, energy specialist at Vayu Energy, and Sheila Baird, visitor centre manager.
