Mitchell & Son have been wine and spirit merchants in Dublin since 1805. Sometime later—likely around 1887—they started contracting their own supply of Irish Whiskey. By the early 1900s, they were selling more than 100 casks of their special recipe out of their store front each year. They would keep track of the different versions by dabbing a colored spot onto the outside of the casks and pour bottles fresh for customers in the store.
Little has changed. Mitchell & Son still have their stores, and they still sell their specially crafted, unique Irish Whiskey in two forms—Green Spot and Yellow Spot. And they produce a very limited batch of each, most of which they sell in their shop so it can be hard to get outside of Ireland. But Uncle Flaviar knows a guy who knows a guy, so get it while you can.
