    CUTTY SARK Introduces ‘Prohibition Edition&# ...
    in Home, Pleasure, Products, Spirits

     Cutty Sark is introducing its first new whisky to America in 80 years, since the original blend was smuggled into America. Aptly named “Cutty Sark Prohibition Edition,” the new whisky salutes the rebellious spirit of Captain Bill McCoy, the man whose smuggling operation in the Prohibition era between 1920-1933 was so effective it gave rise to Cutty Sark’s reputation as “The Real McCoy.”

    At a time when spirits were scarce, and the market was saturated with watered-down knock-offs, McCoy became known for delivering Cutty Sark to Americans in its pure, unadulterated form, resulting in the brand’s nickname “The Real McCoy.”

    In the film Barney (Stallone), Christmas (Statham) and the rest of the team come face-to-face with Conrad Stonebanks (Gibson), who years ago co-founded The Expendables with Barney. Stonebanks subsequently became a ruthless arms trader and someone who Barney was forced to kill… or so he thought. Stonebanks, who eluded death once before, now is making it his mission to end The Expendables — but Barney has other plans. Barney decides that he has to fight old blood with new blood, and brings in a new era of Expendables team members, recruiting individuals who are younger, faster and more tech-savvy. The latest mission becomes a clash of classic old-school style versus high-tech expertise in the Expendables’ most personal battle yet.
