#Mitchell's & Woodford Bourne: Wine Merchants & Whiskey Bonders
Our 2020 Christmas extravaganza will be held in (drum roll please) … your gaff! Ahem, due to a certain virus which will not be named, we must dutifully carry on with our successful online ZOOM events for the foreseeable future. We expect your gaff will look nice and festive and we promise, as ever, to provide a superb selection of Irish whiskey to advance the cause.
Woodford Bourne - Wine Merchants of Cork
With business roots that originated in 1750 Cork, it was a real pity when Woodford Bourne ceased trading on Patrick Street in the 1980's. Famous for the quality of their wares, their bonded warehouse was situated on Sheares Street. We will taste their vintage Brown Label 10 YO which would have been distilled in Bow Street distillery and matured in their Cork city warehouse.
Mitchell's - Wine Merchants of Dublin
The Spot Irish whiskey lineup is complete once again: Blue Spot is back! We are super excited therefore, to showcase the full array of Mitchell's Spot whiskeys. You can compare every Spot whiskey that has been released in the last few years as well as a vintage 1960's Green Spot that would have been distilled in John Jameson's Bow Street distillery and matured in the Mitchells’ cellars at Fitzwilliam Lane, Dublin.
Ger Garland, of Irish Distillers, and our own Eric Ryan, of same distillery, will host this event and will be ably assisted by representatives of the wine houses: Robert Mitchell (Mitchell's) and Edward Nicholson (Woodford Bourne). The whiskey selection will be:
Blue Spot 7 YO Cask Strength. (New Release)
Green Spot Single Pot Still.
Green Spot "Chateau Leoville Barton".
Green Spot "Chateau Montelena".
Yellow Spot 12 YO Single Pot Still
Red Spot 15 YO Single Pot Still.
Vintage Woodford Bourne Brown Label JJ&S 10 YO (1960's)
Vintage Mitchell Green Spot 10 YO (1960'S)
