Cutty Sark – A Whisky like no other

Cutty Sark is the epitome of adventure and created especially for individuals who dare to discover. It was created in 1923 by a group of adventurous friends who dared to break the whisky tradition. It was the first Scotch made to be mixed. Yes you read it right, made to be mixed!

Cutty Sark is an iconic light coloured Whisky that was launched in the height of the cocktail culture and has remained a favourite among Scotch Whisky drinkers who love to mix this wonderful spirit and experiment. This is a top quality blended whisky with more range, depth, complexity and balance than single malt. It is matured in American oak casks which give out fewer colours to the drink and impart more subtle and complex flavours.

Having graced the world’s best bars for over 90 years, Cutty Sark’s popularity can now be brought home and experimented on by a Whisky connoisseur like you. This spirit has also gained popularity because of its mention in the movie ‘Goodfellas’, in the ‘Sopranos’.

And, a trip to space! Don’t believe us? In 1963 Gordon Cooper, the youngest of the USA’s first astronauts, actually smuggled a bottle of Cutty on the Mercury 9 mission.

Here are some easy and taste bud friendly cocktails that can make you a Cutty Sark fan in no time.
