Cutty Sark is a popular whisky blend which was created in 1923 with the help of the wine merchants Berry Brothers and Rudd. The blend was made with the very best whiskies on the market, and it was blended to have a light hue and a smooth flavour. It was named for the famous 19th century tea clipper, which in turn gets its name from the Gaelic for "Short Shirt". Today, Cutty Sark is made with around 21 malt whiskies from Speyside, including Glenrothes. The blend is married in oak for six months before bottling and the result is the one of the best-selling blends worldwide.
