  • Green Spot Irish Whiskey
  • Description
    • Green Spot was originally produced exclusively for the Mitchell family who, commenced trading in 1805 on 10 Grafton St. in the heart of Dublin city as purveyors of fine wines and confectionary. Four 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 whiskey bonding in 1887, whereby they sent empty wine, sherry and port casks via horse and cart to the local Jameson Distillery, which were then filled and returned to the Mitchell’s cellar warehouse. There, the whiskeys matured for many years under bond until they were ready to be bottled and sold. Green Spot is a non age statement Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey comprising of pot still whiskeys aged between 7 and 10 years. The whiskey has matured in a combination of new bourbon and refill bourbon casks as well as sherry casks.

  • Dry Fly Straight Wheat Whiskey Cask Strength
  • Details
    • Dry Fly Washington Wheat Whiskey is 100% local soft white wheat. It is distilled twice in traditional American whiskey style. Then it is aged minimum  3 years in new 53-gallon American Oak barrels with a #3 char. Dry Fly Cask Wheat Whiskey is the same whiskey as our 90 proof wheat whiskey, but bottled at cask strength: 120 proof. It is our highest rated whiskey ever, and shows that a 100% wheat whiskey can be bigger and bolder. It typically drinks much softer than its 120 proof.
    • Dry Fly Distilling, Spokane, Washington
