Green Spot Quails’ Gate

Irish Whiskey from the Midleton Distillery

The Spot range of whiskey is produced by Midleton Distillery for the Mitchell family, wine and spirit merchants who commenced trading initially in confectionary in Dublin in 1805. Their dedicated wine business opened in Kildare St, Dublin in 1887. Mitchells are Ireland's sole surviving wine and spirit merchant.

Like many of their Victorian counterparts, Mitchell & Sons bought spirit from the distilleries, kept it under bond and sold it under their own name. To keep track of how long the whiskey had been aged, a dab or “spot” of paint - green, yellow or red - was applied to the cask. Green Spot has been sold continuously since at least the name was trademarked in 1933.

This is the third instalment in the Green Spot Wine Geese Series. The series is a celebration of Ireland’s historic contribution to the wine world, a tribute to the group of Irish families known as ‘The Wine Geese’ who left Ireland and set up wineries across the globe.

Green Spot Quails’ Gate is a triple distilled, single pot still Irish whiskey finished in pinot noir casks from Quails' Gate winery, British Columbia in Canada. It is non-chill filtered and bottled at 46% ABV.
