Teeling Whiskey has recently announced that it has become the official Irish whiskey partner of the Aer Lingus College Football Classic series. This partnership is a perfect match as Dublin has become the European home of American College Football with the opening game of the new College Football season now hosted in the Aviva Stadium during August. As the Distillery is located in the heart of Dublin city and is celebrated as the Spirit of Dublin, this partnership is an ideal opportunity for Teeling Whiskey.
The next game in the five game series will be Notre Dame hosting Navy in the Aviva Stadium on Saturday 26th of August. This game will be the first time that Notre Dame will move a home game to Ireland and will be the opening game for the 2023 College Football season. Teeling Whiskey’s Founder and Managing Director, Jack Teeling, has expressed his excitement for the partnership, stating, “It is a great opportunity for Teeling Whiskey to be the official Irish Whiskey partner for such a great event. We are delighted to be using this partnership to showcase our high quality whiskey and distillery experience to the calibre of US visitors coming for the game as well as working with the other partners to help solidify our strong relationship with the US.”
The Aer Lingus College Football Classic game series is a successful and proactive public-private collaboration that is estimated to be worth €413 million to the Irish economy, according to Grant Thornton and Fáilte Ireland. This partnership will prove to be a timely and welcome boost to the Irish hospitality and tourism industries over the next few years.
