STAR TREK character Montgomery Scott – better known as Scotty – has been honoured with his very own Scotch whisky.
Celebrity tipples are in vogue, with even empty bottles of Conor McGregor’s Proper 12 whiskey fetching almost €80 online.
And while Scotty may be a fictional character, a spirit named for the beloved engineer of the Starship Enterprise is sure to be popular with Trekkies.
Considering Scotty was born in Scotland, Scotch was the obvious choice for a drink in his honour, which is produced by the Silver Screen Bottling Company.
In fact in one episode of Star Trek, Scotty – originally played by second-generation Irish actor James Doohan – drank an invading alien under the table with a ‘very, very, very old Scotch’.
Silver Screen Bottling Company said: “Montgomery Scott Scotch is a genuine blended Scotch whisky.
“The limited batch is produced in Glasgow by one of the most awarded distilleries in Scotland and is exceptionally smooth with just a slight smoky note.”
The whisky, costing $49.99, can be pre-ordered now for shipping in March 2019.
If Scotch isn’t to your liking, Trek fans, the Silver Screen Bottling Company also produce James T. Kirk Bourbon, James T. Kirk Bourbon Reserve and Ten-Forward Vodka.
