CUTTY SARK Prohibition
CUTTY SARK Prohibition is crafted as a salute to the famous Captain William "Bill" McCoy, who smuggled CUTTY SARK Blended Scotch Whisky into America during the Prohibition era in the 1920s. Captain McCoy's impeccable reputation for not dealing with the mob, and for providing the finest, unadulterated liquor gave rise CUTTY SARK being referred as "The Real McCoy".
« Terrific. Just fabulous. Tremendous base for cocktails too. ».

A Salute To The Famous Captain Bill McCoy…
The second in our Whisky family, Prohibition was released 80 years after the end of the era it’s named after, and remembers Bill McCoy, legendary Captain and smuggler of CUTTY SARK Whisky during 1920’s Prohibition. It’s a rich and robust Whisky, perfect for cocktails or to set the mood for those more meaningful get-togethers.
A Full Flavoured Whisky
CUTTY SARK Prohibition is bottled at 50% ABV (100 Proof – USA Measure). This is a “small batch” blend of the finest single malts and top-quality grain Whiskies. Hand-selected American Sherry oak casks give subtle signature flavours of vanilla and spice, whilst the overall flavours and finish are extremely smooth and thrillingly complex.
After nearly a century of adventures and discoveries, CUTTY SARK has gathered its passion and expertise to create a 12 year old high quality Whisky. Offering a « mellow mouthfeel », the expression is balanced by complex notes of spice and fruit.
