Cutty Sark Scotch partners with Royal Museums Greenwich

Jun 25, 2021

The Drinks Business 25 June 2021 By Christian Smith Cutty Sark has partned with Royal Museums Greenwich, where the eponymous iconic three-mast clipper is housed. The La Martiniquaise-Bardinet-owned whisky was named after the Cutty Sark three-mast clipper, which was built in Scotland in 1869. The ship was one of the fastest clippers of its era, and used to partake in clipper races to bring tea from China and wool from Australia. The vessel was named after the Tam O’Shanter poem by Scottish writer Robert Burns. Lucy Cooke, head of development at Royal Museums Greenwich, said: “We are very grateful to Cutty Sark whisky for their kind support of our work and care of the great ship, after which the whisky was named. “We look forward to this being the start of a long and fruitful partnership with Cutty Sark Scotch.” Cutty Sark said it was ‘honoured’ to be a corporate partner of the Royal Museums Greenwich, highlighting the ‘spirit of adventure that lives in us all’. The whisky has displayed the clipper on its label since the brand launched in 1923. Subscribe to our daily newsletter Subscribe
