Green Spot Irish Whiskey
is a 100% pure pot still whiskey that can trace its roots to the early 1900’s, when Jamesons sold whiskey to wine merchants Mitchell & Son. In those days it was common practice for wine merchants and publicans to bottle their own whiskey but sell it under the distiller’s brand name. Mitchells Greenspot became as famous as Jameson itself and it is one of just a few old merchant brands that is still available. Green Spot is a non age statement Single Pot Still Irish whiskey and the current bottling is made at Midleton from 7-9 year old pure pot still whiskey, with 25% coming from sherry casks and a medium weight pot still content.
Only small quantities of Green Spot Irish Whiskey are bottled each year, there is no real reason why but it is highly prized by both drinkers and whiskey writers.
