    I don't think it's imported. La Maison du Whisky is likely your best bet.

    Unfortunately, Green Spot is not imported to the US. You would have to get it from someone overseas.

    I've heard off and on rumors that they may be importing it sometime, but who knows. Too bad as it's probably my favorite Irish Whiskey.

    I have seen it regularly at Park Avenue Liquors in NYC, although I don't know if it's currently available there.

    Re: Green Spot Irish Whiskey

    It's not "officially" available in the US. I have loved this whiskey for 15 years, have promoted it often, and even tried to get it imported to the U.S.

    I hooked up the brand owner with a passionate importer but, from what I can gather, the producer of the whiskey (Irish Distillers/Pernod) feared it might compete with Redbreast which was imported to the U.S. about the same time. (BTW, both whiskeys are made at the same distillery--Midleton--and is the only distillery in Ireland selling Single Pot Still whiskey at the moment.)

    uhh I take that back. Looks like they stopped carrying it. Right after I typed that i went to the LCBO to look it up and I don't see it there.

    Well that sucks. I got some from there last year.

    I still have some of mine. If you want to throw a bug in Pernod's ear, tell them to send some Crested 10 to the USA. Jamesons aged in sherry barrels sounds good to me!

    It's not available currently at LCBO but seems to re-appear regularly after a hiatus. I liked it best 10 years ago when it had a fruity tang (spearmint gum-like), latterly the oak seems to have more of a say. I prefer (regular) Powers by quite a margin.

    John,

    Are you saying that Bushmills no longer makes a single malt pot still? and are you waying that Cooley no longer makes Connemara, Michael Powers, Seine Fe, etc.?
    Thanks,
    Stu
    There's no such thing as bad whiskey, there's only over priced whiskey.

    I didn't type the word "malt" there anywhere. What was previously called Pure Pot Still is not called Single Pot Still. More detail here.
