The six new US-based recruits will act as brand ambassadors within it's sales and marketing division there, which currently employs eight.
"For us, in terms of our overall numbers, this is a big investment in the US market," said Teeling, "But the US market is so huge and we need Irish people who are passionate and who can tell our story to the bars, restaurants and consumers to enable us to get where we need to grow." He added.
Founded in 2012, the independent Irish whiskey producer is run by brothers Jack and Stephen and currently employs 55 and exports to 44 countries.
