About Cut Classics

Cut Classics is the world’s first range of Light Spirits: classic spirits created with half the alcohol content of a typical gin, rum or vodka.

Our mission is to bring classic spirits into the 21st century by adapting them to the pace, priorities and concerns of modern lifestyles whilst preserving their unique character and flavour.

We have never had a better understanding of the damaging health impacts of excessive alcohol consumption. We have never had busier lifestyles, with pressure at work and numerous ways to entertain ourselves in our spare time. We have never had a lower societal tolerance for doing harm to others as a result of inebriation. Yet the alcohol content of classic spirits has not changed for centuries. Until now!

Cut Classics deliver the taste, character, versatility and enjoyment of traditional spirits at an alcohol level better suited to modern life. We call this Moderation Without Compromise®.
