Green Spot

The Mitchell & Son wine merchants started their business in 1805. At first they set up a bakery and confectionery on Dublin’s Grafton street. But with the rise of demand for Irish Whiskey in the Victorian Whiskey boom era, they soon entered the Whiskey bonding business. What they did is purchase new-made Whiskey under their bond to mature and bottle it themselves before selling it under their brand.By doing that they evaded paying the excise tax.

It’s unknown when exactly Green Spot was first produced but by the 1920’s Mitchell & Son had bottled over 100 Sherry casks of Whiskey per year. Usually the Whiskey was matured for five years in casks by the distiller and later blended and matured by the merchant itself for at least five more years, depending on the ‘Spot’ brand name. The name comes from marking the different ages of casks with a different colour.
