When we were on a barge right on the Okanagan lake with yachts and boats passing by, I thought it was fitting to name this drink after one of the famous tea clippers of the past.

Tea clippers were designed to be fast, so they could transport goods like spices, teas and other items like silk from Asia much quicker. The Cutty Sark was one of the last every built and one of the fastest as well. This ship was named after the nickname of the witch Nannie Dee in Robert Burns 1791 poem, Tam O’Shanter.
