All About Spot Whiskeys
In 1805, the Mitchell & Sons Wine Merchants Company was established in the heart of Dublin, Ireland. By the turn of the 19th century, the Mitchells had sold a range of Irish whiskeys under the name “Spot.” This name originated from the company’s practice of marking casks of different ages with a spot of colored paint. As a result, Mitchell & Sons sold whiskeys named Blue Spot, Green Spot, Red Spot, and finally Yellow Spot, which was last seen in the mid-to-late 1960s.
