Cutty Sark’s Cocktail Recipies

About the brand

Cutty Sark is an iconic brand which embodies the spirit of fearlessness, brave, bold & creative from the very time it was introduced in the US during the prohibition era (1923), to today, when the brand is constantly innovating and reinventing itself. Cutty Sark blended Scotch whisky was launched in 1923 and was acquired by Edrington in 2010. Since its launch, Cutty Sark – the original smooth whisky, has graced the world’s best bars and clubs for over 90 years and is considered an iconic brand. Originally conceived as an export brand, Cutty Sark is available in over 50 markets around the world; it is particularly successful in the USA and Southern Europe, especially Spain, Portugal and Greece.

The bottle proudly proclaims that the whisky is a “salute to the notorious Captain William S. McCoy, who smuggled Cutty Sark blended Scotch whisky into America during the Prohibition era of the 1920’s. His impeccable reputation for only dealing in the finest, genuine & unadulterated liquor – gave rise to Cutty Sark being referred to as ‘THE REAL McCOY’.
