Is Green Spot the best £35 you can spend on a bottle of Irish whiskey? We discuss why it just might be a great whisky buy.
Green Spot is a single pot still Irish whiskey, produced specifically for Mitchell & Son of Dublin by Irish Distillers at the Midleton Distillery in Cork, Ireland. Described by whiskey writer Jim Murray as “unquestionably one of the world’s great whiskeys”, Green Spot is one of the few remaining bonded Irish whiskeys. Along with Mitchell’s older bottling, Yellow Spot, it is one of only two whiskeys specifically produced for and sold by an independent wine merchant in Ireland.
You can get a Green Spot at almost any bar in the world, but you can certainly try it at Nuala Bar: http://nualalondon.com
