The combination of citrus and whisky makes for a delightful and balanced beverage that is perfect for sipping on a warm day.

Origins of the Cutty Collins

The origins of the Cutty Collins can be traced back to London in the mid-1800s. It was created as a twist on the popular Tom Collins cocktail, which typically consists of gin, lemon juice, sugar, and soda water. The name "Collins" comes from John Collins, who was a bartender at Limmer's Hotel in London during this time period.

The story goes that one day, someone decided to swap out gin for Scotch whisky in their Tom Collins recipe and thus the Cutty Collins was born. The use of Cutty Sark Scotch whisky gives this cocktail a unique flavor profile with hints of peatiness and maltiness that complement the tartness of the lemon juice perfectly.
