Will we be saying that soon? Yup, a company in Panama is marketing whiskey in a can. I'm speechless.

Interesting... don't know about the 12oz can, but a 5.5oz can (like what orange juice comes in) might make sense. I will sometimes take whiskey to friends house and I don't like lugging a whole bottle around.

Like minis, which I think are handy for sampling. But a beverage can can't be reclosed. Reminds me of a limerick (clean!): there was a canner exceedly canny, who remarked one day to his granny, a canner can can anything thing that he can, but a canner can't can a can, can he?

Reminds me of Jim Beam and cola in a can, only without the cola.

standards of fill for distilled spirits:

(2) For metal containers which have the general shape and design of a can,
which have a closure which is an integral part of the container, and which cannot
be readily reclosed after opening--
355 milliliters
200 milliliters
100 milliliters
50 milliliters

355ml=12 fl oz
200ml=6.76 fl oz
100ml=3.38 fl oz
50ml= 1.69 fl oz

A 6.76 would work just the same.
