Green Spot, but somehow even better.

The Mitchell & Son started their wine-selling gig in 1805, but when the Victorian palates suddenly demanded Whiskey in streams, they entered the bonding business. They purchased fresh Whiskey under bond, matured it themselves, and bottled it as their own brand. It’s a great way of making Whiskey without actually making Whiskey, but it’s also a fantastic way to evade the excise tax. Now, we don’t really know when the first Green Spot was created, but by the 1920s, The Mitchell & Son had bottled more than a hundred Sherry casks of Whiskey per year. Usually, the distiller matured Whiskey for five years before they blended and sold it to the merchant, who then matured it for at least five more years. It all depended on the color of the spot, which marks different ages: Blue is 7, Green is 10, Yellow is 12, and Red is 15 years.

Green Spot Chateau Montelena is a gloriously vibrant 10-year-old that received a lavish finish in French oak casks that once held Zinfandel wine from the esteemed Chateau Montelena in Napa Valley, California. Green Spot is already a cult classic, but this exquisite finish turned it into a must-have delight with a beautiful bouquet of cranberry, pomegranate, and maraschino cherry, and a silky mouthfeel that carries the remarkable wine influence. We. Are. In. Love!
