Panamanian based Scottish Spirits Ltd. will soon distribute Whisky in a Can. Each can is 12oz, which means that there are about eight shots of whisky in each can. It's unclear at this time whether Whisky in a Can is meant to be shared by a few friends or guzzled in a frat boy initiation stunt. 

Even though the company is called Scottish Spirits, the company points out that this is whisky and not Scotch, since Whisky in a Can is not made in Scottland.  The company also plans to market Tequila in a Can, Rum in a Can, Gin in a Can and Vodka in a Can.
