"If a single malt is like a virtuoso musician, then a blended whisky is the full orchestra. A top quality blended whisky has more range, depth, complexity and balance than a malt. Carefully selected single malt whiskies, predominantly from Speyside (the cradle of single malt whisky distillation), are expertly blended with top quality grain whiskies to make Cutty Sark.
It is matured predominantly in American oak casks which impart less colour to the spirit but impart further subtle and complex flavours. Once matured, the malts are blended together, as are the grain whiskies. This process is a particular feature of Cutty Sark and ensures the final blend is harmonised and, therefore, consistent in colour and flavour."
Cutty Sark is an iconic whisky; the distinctive yellow label has graced the world’s best bars and clubs for over 90 years. The first light-coloured blended whisky, it was launched at the height of cocktail culture and it has remained synonymous with enjoying great drinks in great company ever since.
