Green Spot Pot Sill Irish Whiskey...$53.99
IN 1805 THE MITCHELL merchant family commenced trading on 10 Grafton Street, in the heart of Dublin city as purveyors of confectionery, wines and fortified wines.
In 1887, this entrepreneurial family expanded into the whiskey bonding business whereby they sent empty wine, sherry and port casks via horse and cart to the local Jameson Distillery which were then filled with whiskey and returned to the Mitchell’s cellar warehouse on Fitzwilliam Lane. There, beneath the cobble streets of Dublin, the whiskeys matured for many years under bond until they were ready to be bottled.
The Mitchells sold a range of whiskeys under their ‘Spot’ brand name. This rather peculiar name originated from their practice of marking casks of different ages with a daub or spot of coloured paint. There was a Blue Spot, Red Spot and even a Yellow Spot, but Green Spot emerged as their most popular whiskey and is one of the few “whiskey bonder brands” to survive to modern day.
GREEN SPOT is a non age statement Single Pot Still Irish whiskey and is comprised of Pot Still whiskeys aged between 7 and 10 years. The whiskey has matured in a combination of new bourbon and refill bourbon casks as well as sherry casks. Only small quantities of Green Spot are bottled each year. No real reason why. Drink some more and we'll bottle more.
Fresh aromatic oils and spices with orchard fruits and barley on a background of toasted wood.
Full spicy body. A hint of cloves along with the fruity sweetness of green apples, rounded off with toasted oak.
Lingering flavours of spices and barley.
