Cutty Sark, once the best-selling Scotch in the Scotch whisky's largest export market - the US - the brand still sells more than two million cases annually worldwide - is being relaunched into the UK.

While Cutty Sark has been available in the UK through some specialist independents, the Original and Blended Malt are now available through Emporia Brands and multiple retailer, Sainsbury's has listed the latter at £19.99.

Emporia chairman, James Rackham, said: "Cutty Sark was originally created during the cocktail boom of the 1920s and we believe that with the current interest in cocktails and brands with heritage and provenance, the time is right for Cutty Sark."
