Yellow Spot is a single pot still Irish whiskey introduced by Mitchell & Son in the 1960s. Established as a whiskey bonding business - the practice of buying new make spirit from distilleries for the purpose of maturing it for their own blend - they are one of only a tiny number of whiskey bonder families still in business today.
Yellow Spot takes its name from the Mitchell family's practice of marking their casks of different ages with a spot of paint. The Yellow Spot whiskey, aged for 12 years in bourbon, sherry and Spanish Malaga wine casks takes some sweetness from the Spanish wine. Whiskey Advocate named Yellow Spot "Irish Whiskey of the Year" in 2012.
