Dublin Rising.

by Syd Briscoe

Teeling Whiskey: “The Spirit of Dublin” - 1 min 40s

Dublin-based whiskey brand Teeling promise to do the Irish capital justice in this nicely polished ad. From dawn shots looking across the River Liffey to the minute details of day-to-day life, director Ross Killeen takes a cinematic look at what gives Dublin its distinctive character.

The film explores the city in all its diversity, from traditional butcher shops to modern hipster cafés. There are also some lovely shots of the distilling process itself, from grain to still and finally glass. Blending the past and present just as the city does, it's an effective way to herald the arrival of a new "golden era of whiskey".
