CUTTY SARK Prohibition 50%

Blended Whisky, Scotland, 70cl, Ref: 51605

Bottled at 50% ABV, this edition is a “small batch” blend of the finest single malts and top-quality grain whiskies. Hand-selected American oak casks give subtle signature flavours of vanilla and citrus fruits, whilst the overall flavours and finish are extremely smooth and thrillingly complex.

Released 90 years after the end of the era which it celebrates, Cutty Sark Prohibition Edition has been crafted as a salute to the notorious Captain William McCoy, who smuggled Cutty Sark blended Scotch whisky into America during the Prohibition era of the 1920s.

The brand

Launched in 1923 under the initiative of Francis Berry, who was at the time the owner of the London company Berry Bros & Rudd, the blend Cutty Sark owes its name to the famous clipper known in the 1870s for its record speed. It was the artist James BcBey who, after a meeting, came up with the name, immediately creating a drawing of the ship that would some years later become the logo of one of the most famous blended scotch whiskies in the world. Cutty Sark was also the name given by Tam O’Shanter to a young witch who, dressed in only a short “cutty sark” shirt chased him across the Scottish moors (Tam O’Shanter, a poem by Robert Burns).
