    Pass me a can of Scotch

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

    Re: Pass me a can of Scotch

    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.

    Re: Pass me a can of Scotch

    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

    As long as you have good whiskey you're not "unemployed", you're "Funemployed!!!"

    A 6.76 would work just the same.
