Crafted from an old recipe handed down by the Mitchell & Son family of wine merchants, with records dating back to the early 1900s, the reimagined Red Spot is a triple-distilled, single pot still Irish whiskey that has been matured for a minimum of 15 years in a combination of casks pre-seasoned with bourbon, Oloroso sherry and Marsala fortified wine.
This highly-anticipated release delivers a full-bodied, complex and characterful flavour, worthy of its colourful past.
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 flavours, making it the top spot in the range.
Pot Still spices with rich cooked fruit, baked apple, mango and black cherry. Hazelnut and a touch of new leather fuse with toasted American Oak.
A mix of ripe fruit sweetness from the Marsala seasoned wine casks. While the fruit remains, sweet red pepper and cracked black pepper add some spiciness, finished by notes of American Oak and barley.
An extra long infusion of fruits and spices.
"Pouring over old recipe books, ledgers and archive material has provided us with the tools to tell the story of Red Spot in a new, yet authentic way… this is a whiskey homecoming for the ages"
Did you know?
Last seen 50 years ago, the reimagining of Red Spot began in the early 2000’s when Marsala fortified wine casks were procured from Sicily. In 2004, these were filled with a five-year-old Bourbon matured single pot still Irish whiskey.
