Green Spot Irish Whiskey Essential Facts
- Green Spot is one of the only pure pot-still whiskey brands produced in Ireland today.
- Back in the day, wine merchants Mitchell & Son also offered a Blue Spot and a Red Spot whiskey in addition to Green Spot and Yellow Spot. (Yellow Spot is still made, but it’s not available in the US.)
- The whiskey’s odd name has practical origins: To keep track of the barrels in the warehouse, each one was marked with a spot of paint when a shipment arrived from the distillery.
