Whiskey Live is a great event to get an overview of what’s happening in the world of Irish Whiskey and as a bonus, you can sample many whiskeys to find your favorite one. For those who decide to attend the event, I also recommend attending the masterclasses. There you can try special vintages and unusual varieties of whiskeys as well as meet the actual distillers, whether large or small, new or established.
The Mitchell family expanded their business in 1887 and started trading in wine and spirits. Like many others, they bought the whiskey from Jameson and matured it in port or sherry barrels. Mitchell & Son's Whiskey started with "Pat Whisky". From 1933, it was called "John Jameson & Son 10 Year Old Green Seal" and later simply became known as "Green Spot". Today, the Mitchell family is still in the wine and spirits business, but Irish Distillers legally own the name Green Spot. 7th generation Mitchell family members Robert Mitchell and Dave McCabe, Assistant Blender at the Midleton Distillery, will together reveal the secrets of the "Spots" in their much-anticipated Masterclass which will take place on Saturday, 23rd November at 2:45.
Please note that you need to buy a ticket to the main Whiskey Live event in order to participate in the Masterclasses.
