What is yellow spot Irish whiskey?

1 post in this topic

Yellow Spot Irish Whiskey is the oldest Irish whiskey in the world, and it’s been around since 1779. This pot still whiskey has a rich flavor that comes from malted barley, barley, and corn. It’s aged in sherry casks for up to 10 years before bottling to add complexity to its already delicious body.

Yellow Spot is not only rich with history but also quality: it was awarded “Best Blended Whiskey” at The International Wine & Spirits Competition in London in 2013 (and again in 2014).

The history of yellow spot Irish whiskey

The history of yellow spot Irish whiskey is as rich as its taste profile. First produced in 1849, this pot still and grain blend has been distilled at the Midleton Distillery in Co Cork since 1974. It’s then aged for five years in ex-bourbon barrels before being bottled at 40% ABV (80 proof). The name comes from the fact that its label is yellow, which makes it easy to spot on a shelf full of brown bottles!
