Green spot may refer to:
- Green Spot (soft drink), a non-carbonated soft drink sold in South East Asia
- Green Spot (whiskey), an Irish pot still whiskey
Green Spot is a single pot still Irish whiskey, produced specifically for Mitchell & Son of Dublin, by Irish Distillers at the Midleton Distillery, Cork, Ireland. It is one of the few remaining bonded Irish whiskeys, and along with Yellow Spot (see below) are currently the only brands specifically produced for and sold by an independent wine merchant in Ireland.
Green Spot was described by whiskey writer Jim Murray as "unquestionably one of the world's great whiskeys."
Developed in 1934 in the United States after the introduction of Orangeade, the brand established operations in Thailand in 1954. While the brand is no longer popular in the United States, the current brand is now focused on the Asian market.
Formerly only available in bottles, Green Spot is now also sold in a 325 ml can with carbonation (fizz).
Green Spot was once popular in Hong Kong, but it has since ceased to sell their bottle drinks and tetra pak boxes are sold in small quantities. The drink can be found at Asian food store Hoo Hing in Essex, England. The soft drink was for sale in The Netherlands as well. In 1962 the Dutch artist Wim T. Schippers emptied a bottle in the sea near Petten. He managed to make it an international news item.
