About the Whiskey:
Red Spot was originally produced by the Mitchell family who commenced trading in 1805 at 10 Grafton Street in the heart of Dublin city as purveyors of fine wine and confectionery. Seven generations later, the company is still in the wine and spirits business under the stewardship of Jonathan Mitchell and his son Robert.

The Mitchell family expanded into the whiskey bonding business in 1887, whereby they sent empty wine and fortified wine casks via horse and cart to the local Jameson Distillery which were then filled with new Pot Still spirit and returned to the Mitchell's maturation cellars.

The Red Spot name was derived from the Mitchell's practice of marking their maturing casks of whiskey with a mark or daub of coloured paint to determine the age potential of the whiskey.

Red Spot Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey has matured for over 15 years in a combination of American Bourbon casks, Spanish sherry butts and Sicilian Marsala wine casks, all contributing in rich and complex flavors, making it the top spot in the range.

Awards/Reviews:

95 Points - Intl Wine & Spirits Competition 2023

"Exquisitely sweet and confected aromas with a floral, camomile and dried grass underpin. Honey coated peach and apricots infuse decadently with vanilla, caramel and warming baking spice to deliver a mellow, lingering finish, flecked with tropical nuances."

Chairman's Trophy, 97 Points, Top 100 - Ultimate Spirits Challenge 2023

"Remarkably elegant aromas of stewed grain, toffee, and leather rise softly from the glass. A sip reveals stunning complexity, as integrated flavors of honey biscuits, soft baking spice, and delicate fruit notes weave an intricately complex profile. A truly unforgettable and refined Irish whiskey."
