In 1923 Francis Berry and Hugh Rudd challenged existing scotch whisky standards by producing the 'Original' naturally-coloured blended whisky: Cutty Sark Scots Whisky. The market at the time was dominated by the heavier, coarser blends; Berrys created a smooth, softer blend (akin to Cognac) based on the finest single malts, those from the Speyside region of Scotland.
'Cutty Sark' is Gaelic for 'short shirt' and the whisky is named after the 19th century tea clipper, which was the fastest sailing ship of her day.
