Viewer's Comments about Cutty Sark

Courtesy of Cutty SarkCUTTY SARK Scots Whisky was created on 20th March 1923 when the partners of wine & spirit merchants Berry Bros. discussed the launch of a new whisky. At the time, the popularity of Scotch Whisky was beginning to grow around the world.

Senior partner Francis Berry had a strong belief in the potential for a new style of whisky and he insisted that only the finest malt whiskies should be selected for the new blend and that the whisky should be naturally light in colour. The partners had invited James McBey, a well known Scottish artist to a luncheon that day to discuss the launch. It was he who suggested the name and designed the label for the new whisky.

Exceptional care is taken throughout the production process. Created by established wine & spirit merchants who believed in quality and innovation, it deliberately challenged existing standards. It has been a successful world class premium brand since launched. Craft, dedication and skill are evident in distilling, maturing and blending. There are no shortcuts to outstanding quality and genuine character. Cutty Sark was the first light coloured whisky of exceptional quality.
Courtesy of Cutty SarkThe Cutty Sark blend is made up of around twenty renowned single whiskies, predominantly from the Speyside region in Scotland, which are blended with high quality grain whiskies. These single malt and single grain whiskies are matured in carefully selected American oak casks. The malts are blended together, as are the grains, before the complete blend is 'married' together for a further six months.

I have a 1.75 lt of Cutty Sark whiskey. Label says "original Scots Whiskey" notice the spelling of Scots NOT Scotch. Any others out there mislabeled?

James Bond, MI6, may like his dry martinis, but my favorite spy prefers Cutty Sark. His name is Michael Vaux, and he appears in two recent espionage thrillers--'The Wayward Spy' and 'Operation Saladin'.

Cutty Sark was a hit at our last get together. Goes well with flip cup and can't wait for a nosing.

I'm an old Cutty fan (83) and I want to complain about the new design for the 1.75 litre bottle. The handle is nice but I greatly miss the pourer.
I would give up the handle to have the pourer back.
