This Should Replace Four Loko Nicely

Posted By on Tue, Jan 18, 2011 at 2:30 PM


Finally, some genius puts hard liquor in a can.

A Panama based company with the possible deceptive name Scottish Spirits (although they do have an office in Glasgow) is putting whiskey in what appears to be a twelve ounce can, perfect for the day at the beach when a plastic bottle is too much, but a flask won't quite cut it. While the product is only available in the Caribbean and South America for now, doesn't this seem perfect for our hectic American lifestyles?

However, it turns out the people who market scotch aren't thrilled with the idea:

But last night the Scotch Whisky Association said it would try to ban the cans for breaching international labelling rules.

A spokesman for the body said: ‘We are concerned that consumers may be confused whether or not the product is real Scotch and we will be investigating the matter further.’

Call it what you want, this is a way better idea than the extra large Starbucks cup everyone seemed so excited about yesterday.
