Yellow Spot Whiskey

Yellow Spot

About Yellow Spot

The Yellow Spot name was derived from the Mitchells’ practice of marking their maturing casks of whiskey with a mark or daub of coloured paint to determine the age potential of the whiskey. Blue Spot was an 8-year old, Green Spot a 10-year and Yellow Spot a 12-year old, Red Spot a 15-year old.

In time, all but Green Spot disappeared, with Yellow Spot last being seen on whiskey shelves in the early 1960s.
