Join us when Rebecca Bell, Marketing Manager, and Gabriel Corcoran, Marketing Coordinator of The Teeling Whiskey Company, will share insights behind their success with a briefing titled "Think Global, Act Local – Building a Global Brand from the Ground Up."

The Teeling Whiskey Company was established in 2012 with the ambitious goal of reviving the craft of Dublin distilling, and bringing it to the world. In the past 5 years, a small and agile team has navigated the challenges of building Dublin's first new distillery in over 125 years, the launch of their core range across the United States and as many as 60 export markets, and have created a narrative around quality and innovation, picking up over 150 international awards for their efforts along the way.

All of this was done with a strategy focused on people, agile digital marketing and a new product development process focused on local tastes. The Teeling Whiskey marketing team look forward to presenting their grass-roots approach to building a premium brand, and disrupting a market dominated by established players.
