"ArKay, made by a Florida-based company called Scottish Spirits Ltd and apparently produced in factories in Panama, has a water base to which a variety of chemicals, flavours and colourings are added."

Wow, quite an effort to produce near whisky.
"'ArKay tastes and looks exactly like traditional whisky. It is suitable for drinking straight-up, on the rocks, or with your favourite mixers.'
So says a company spokesperson...sure....has anyone tried this stuff? Or seen it?
ArKay: The 'World's First' Alcohol-Free Whisky Smells Like 'Shoe Cleaner,' Tastes Like 'Horse Saddle'
First Posted: 1/5/12 Updated: 1/5/12
"... Our eight intrepid tasters were unanimous in that this alcohol-free whisky tastes, well, pretty awful. The smell alone was reminiscent of "shoe cleaner" and was "horribly offensive, similar to that of a litter box." The taste made one taster "want to puke." Another said, "This tastes like I'm licking a horse saddle -- I can't tell if it tastes like leather or shoe polish."
Well, chalk that up as something to avoid! Maybe they add a few drops of English Leather to some knock off Sprite.
