Blue 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 Blue 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 agepotential of the whiskey. Blue Spot was a 7 year old whiskey, Green Spot (10 years old), Yellow Spot (12 years old) and Red Spot (15 years old). As a colourful history would have it, this revered Blue Spot has remained underground until now and its introduction reunites the historical Spot Family for the first time in over 100 years.
