Welcome to the 162 Group

The 162 Group has had two focuses. The first has been a stratetegic focus on high potential natural resource start-ups. The principal is to marry geological risk against political uncertainty; which the group has proven successful time and time again. As John Teeling, founder, noted ‘Geology does not change, politics do’.  The second focus has been the development of an independent Irish Whiskey Distillery, the resurrection of old brands and the development of new exciting brands.
