The Spirit of Adventure

Cutty Sark blended Scotch is an iconic whisky; its distinctive yellow label has graced the world's best bars and clubs for nearly 90 years.

The first light-coloured blended whisky, it was launched at the height of cocktail culture in the 1920s and it has remained synonymous with enjoying great drinks in great company ever since. 

The brand keeps cropping up in popular culture, a constant reminder of the status of the brand. There are countless examples: it appears in the Martin Scorsese classics Goodfellas and Raging Bull whilst also featuring in The Sopranos and the stylish New York advertising TV series - Mad Men. Most recently, in Boardwalk Empire, it helps fuel and fund the sub-culture beneath Atlantic City in the 1920s. It is always the choice of adventurous characters!

Cutty Sark's major markets are now Spain, Greece, Portugal, and the USA, where it's very popular in the fast moving and late night on-trade culture.
