Cutty Sark is a blended Scotch whisky. It sips nice over ice on cold days and frigid evenings. We’re particularly smitten with the elegant color palette of the logo design and the subtle hue the green bottle contributes as it complements the label.
In fact we’re going to use the bottle, sailing and the good life as fashion inspiration for those winter/spring boat outings ahead of you.
Cutty Sark Inspired Fashion
It gets cold when you’re out at sea, especially if you’re sailing and there’s going to be any bit of a breeze. To protect your ears we suggest you snag a Discrete Banger Pom Beanie in black and white. Now head to Fred Segal and pick up some Rogue gear to give your wardrobe a handful of necessary & versatile pieces that will last you through and through.
Start with the Rogue Black Denim Jeans with Leather Trim. Try on the Rogue Black Reverse Leather Canvas Zip Boot and top it off with a Rogue Black Washed Wired Leather Snap Front Shirt Jacket. This versatile shirt jacket will wear well from Fall to Winter and no doubt will still be on your back come Spring. Remember we’re talking about layering here.
Pull this look together with the Roycroft – Ratio Stripe Clean Woven Shirt from Shipley & Halmos and accent your excellent taste with a Silk Scarf from Rikki Kasso. The only thing you’re missing is cologne, we suggest you pick up tobacco, saltwater or moss from Portland General Store.
BINGO. Start sipping Cutty on the rocks – Cutty & Soda if you need training wheels. Throw a couple of toothpicks in your shirt jacket pocket and you’re going to be nearly as smooth as Ryan Gosling in Drive.
You’re welcome. If you see me at the bar I will take a Laphroaig on the rocks.
The drawing of the clipper ship Cutty Sark on the label of the whisky bottles is a work of the Swedish artist Carl Georg August Wallin. He was a mariner painter, and this is probably his most famous ship painting. This drawing has been on the whisky bottles since 1955.
Cutty Sark in Modern Literature from wikipedia
An empty Cutty Sark box serves as a plot device in Haruki Murakami‘s novel The Wind Up Bird Chronicle, it is a character’s favourite drink in the 1978 novel The Human Factor by Graham Greene and featured prominently in Murakami’s novel 1Q84. In Charles Bukowski‘s novel Women (novel), there is a scene where the main protagonist – Henri Chinaski fights over a bottle of Cutty Sark with his girlfriend. Eventually the bottle is broken and he takes a sip from what’s left at the bottom.
