Green Spot is produced by the Midleton Distillery for Mitchell’s Wine Merchants in Dublin. It is a highly sought after and very affordable Whiskey which has attained true cult status in recent years.
Green Spot is a 100% pure pot still whiskey that can trace its roots to the early 1900s, when Jameson’s 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. Green Spot is one of just a few old merchant brands that is still available. It was called Pat’s Whiskey in the early part of the 20th century and became part of a range that included Blue Spot, Yellow Spot and Red Spot, all of which had different ages and recipes. The colours being the painted marks on the barrels.
