Green Spot Irish Whiskey
Treat your favourite connoisseur to this premium whiskey gift
This stand out whiskey comes from the renowned Midleton Distilleries in county Cork. It colonists of an irresistible blend of whiskies with an average age of 7 – 9 years distilled in a single pot.
The Mitchell Family
Green Spot was originally produced exclusively for the Mitchell family who commenced trading in Dublin in 1805 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 and returned to the Mitchell’s cellar warehouse. There the whiskies matured for many years under bond until they were ready to be bottled and sold.
Its name relates to the old practice of marking barrels with a daub of colour representing a particular age. Green Spot’s traditional green bottle is now replaced with a stylish clear glass bottle with higher shoulders, a shorter neck and an enlarged base offering the perfect backdrop for the striking new label.
Nose: Fresh aromatic oils and spices with orchard fruits and barley on a background of toasted wood.
Taste: Full spicy body. A hint of cloves along with the fruity sweetness of green apples, rounded off with toasted oak.
Finish: Lingering ﬂavours of spices and barley.
