VOM FASS Embarks on a US Tour with World-Renowned Whiskey Distillery Founder
Internationally Acclaimed ‘From the Cask’ Specialty Retailer Celebrates Whiskey with Founder of Premier Dublin-based Distillery, Jack Teeling
September 23, 2015 // Franchising.com // MADISON, Wis. – VOM FASS, the ultimate destination for the world’s finest whiskeys and spirits, is celebrating Whiskey Days this fall with a special emphasis on their selection of rare whiskeys. A few VOM FASS shops across the U.S. are hosting special celebrations including intimate visits with whiskey producer and Dublin distillery founder, Jack Teeling.
Residents and visitors in Sarasota, Florida, Naples, Florida and Claremont, California are invited to attend Irish events to remember – signature VOM FASS whiskey tastings and informational events led by Jack Teeling.
“We are absolutely honored to be hosting Jack at our shops this October,” said Justin Gibson, president of Madison, Wisconsin-based VOM FASS USA. “Coupling his award-winning expertise with our craft and imported whiskeys, we’re eager to share with our loyal customers all that whiskey has to offer.”
Teeling founded Dublin’s Teeling Whiskey Company in 2012. He modeled it after the original Teeling Whiskey Company, which, like many Dubliner distilleries, closed before 1976 due to economic hardship in Dublin. His company is the first new distillery in Dublin in 125 years. Teeling and his renowned distilling team have perfected numerous premier whiskeys, including small-batch single grain and single malts. In just the past three years, Teeling’s premium Irish whiskeys have won over 60 awards and honors worldwide. VOM FASS is proud to carry several of the whiskeys that Teeling Whiskey Company has to offer.
“Enjoying VOM FASS’ sophisticated liquors is an exceptional way to experience the true whiskey and epicurean cultures,” said Jack Teeling. “I couldn’t have connected with a better concept in the United States.”
VOM FASS is creating an authentically Irish atmosphere where guests are invited to the shop’s European-style tasting rooms for whiskey samplings. Jack will explain the distilling and aging process of whiskey as well as the spirit’s rich, Irish history and flavor profiles. Guests will also enjoy appetizers made with VOM FASS signature products during these events.
By selling hand-selected imported European whiskeys, spirits, oils, vinegars and spices in select locations, and offering an educationally flavorful experience for customers, VOM FASS creates a gathering place for the community to discover flavors that turn ordinary dinner parties and home-cooked meals into exceptional ones. VOM FASS features handmade products from selected artisans who use traditional methods and follow exacting standards to produce their products. VOM FASS only sources its products from partners using natural processes, sustainable agriculture and ethical sourcing.
