I used to work in Mitchell’s during the Christmas break when I was a student – in those days they were in a fine old house on Kildare Street. This is now the Mitchell’s HQ, deep in south Dublin but they are also at CHQ in Docklands and at Avoca in Kilmacanogue. Founded in 1805 by the same family that still runs the company, Mitchell’s is a venerable institution but one that is right up to date in terms of wine. Their own Green Spot and Yellow Spot Whiskeys (including the amazing Green Spot aged in casks from Chateau Léoville-Barton) are the stuff of legend.
