Spot Whisky takes its name from the marking of the barrels that the Mitchell family, who founded the House at the end of the 19th century, used to do: each age of whisky had a colored spot painted on the barrel. Green Spot, the most popular whiskey aged between 7 and 10 years, has become a household name.
