We hope you’re as excited as we are. Behold, straight from Panama (a country synonymous with fine single malts) we bring you canned Scottish Spirits.
“Whiskey in a can!!! No, White Oprah, there’s no need for you to ask Nana Lohan to burn you with a Virginia Slim, because this isn’t a dream. The ‘product of the future’ you presented at your 4th grade science fair has come to life and is now available in real life! A Panama-based company called Scottish Spirits has started testing whiskey in a can in South America and the Caribbean and they hope to bestow this gift to the rest of the world very soon. A rep for the company says that it’s the perfect size to pass around with friends and mix it with different kinds of cola. To which I say….the fuck? Pass it around with friends? Screw friends.”
