Pernod Collaborates With Bordeaux’s Léoville Barton On New Green Spot WhiskeyJune 5, 2015
Pernod Ricard’s Irish Distillers has partnered with Bordeaux winemaker Léoville Barton to create Green Spot Château Léoville Barton whiskey. Initially aged in a combination of ex-Oloroso sherry, new Bourbon and ex-Bourbon barrels, the liquid is then transferred to ex-Bordeaux wine casks from Léoville Barton and aged for 12 to 24 months.
The 46%-abv offering is rolling out into key global markets—including the U.S., U.K., Ireland and France—this month and retails at around $65 a 750-ml. Along with Green Spot, Irish Distillers’ single pot still whiskey portfolio includes the Yellow Spot, Redbreast, Powers and Midleton brands.
