After fifty years, Red Spot Irish Whiskey returns to raves.
 
Mitchel & Sons started as a bakery and pastry shop in Dublin back in 1805. By 1887 they had expanded into Wine imports. And since they imported wine by the barrel, once they bottled the Wine, it was natural for them to get into the business of aging Whiskey. Now that’s all they do. It’s a complicated arrangement — Jameson’s does their distilling, but they do their everything else. This includes purchasing the finest casts, aging, vatting, and so on under the Irish Distillers nameplate — a division of industry giant Pernod Ricard
 
If you are a fan of Irish Whiskey, then this will be exciting news. Red Spot Irish Whiskey hasn’t been made in fifty years. But with the increasing demand for premium Irish Whiskeys, Mitchel & Sons have brought back the twelve year old Yellow Spot in 2012. And since that relaunch was so successful, they immediately planned to bring back the king of the line — Red Spot — which came to fruition in November of 2018. True to the original formula, Red Spot is their signature Pot Still Irish Whiskey aged a full fifteen years in a combination of Bourbon, Oloroso Sherry, and Marsala Wine casks. And it is a delectable wonder to behold. 
 
Smartass Corner:
Originally there was a range of "Spot" Whiskeys — identified by a blob of colored paint on the barrel. There was 7-year old Blue Spot, 10 year old Green Spot, 12 year old Yellow Spot, and 15 year old Red Spot. But 10 year old Green Spot was the most popular and the only one to remain in continuous production.

The Harp is the official emblem of Ireland, not the shamrock. The reason for shamrock’s fame is Saint Patrick.
Irish Whiskey has many varieties: grain Whiskey, malted barley pot-still-distilled, and ‘pure pot-still’ (or ‘single pot still’ as it is now officially known). Then there is Poitin, one of the first Spirits ever made.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
A Whiskey academy was started in 2013 at the Midleton Distillery.
In the U.S., Irish Whiskey sales have jumped by over 500% since 2002. It’s the fastest growing category in the Spirits industry. There’s some news to raise your glass to.
The largest pot still in Midleton Distillery is now situated in the front yard of the distillery.
