This ‘Dram in a Can’ is an Irish Whiskey Pocket Rocket


If you love a glass of quality Irish whiskey, but you’re sick of carrying around a bottle when you head out, check out this canned spirit from Two Stacks. This little pocket rocket squeezes 100ml of 43% (86 proof) non-chill filtered blended Irish whiskey into a tiny ‘Dram in a Can’ and they pack a punch with 3.4 standards.

Don’t confuse them for a watered-down pre-mixed whiskey cocktail, these little guys are nothing but straight whiskey and are available at Dan Murphy’s in a four-pack for AUD$45.99.

We’re not going to pretend like the liquid inside is the purest expression, but the canned dram tastes pretty good. Five main elements build the flavour profile:

  • 40% Dark Grain: Aged in Virgin Oak Casks
  • 40% Light Grain: Aged in Bourbon Casks
  • 8% Pot Still: Aged in Oloroso Sherry Casks
  • 10% Double Malt: aged in Bourbon Casks
  • 2% Peated Malt: aged in Bourbon Casks

The result is an honest representation of what Irish whiskey can taste like without verging on the weird and wonderful expressions we love. Expect Jameson-like flavours with honey, caramel, and a little hint of peat smoke on the finish. It’s not going to win any awards, but it’s a canned whiskey for crying out loud.

There’s also a sustainability element to the ‘Dram in a Can’ with the cans themselves weighing only 22g (8x lighter than conventional miniature 5cl glass bottles). “We are committed to establishing fresh benchmarks of excellence in Irish whiskey while promoting sustainability and accessibility in every facet of our endeavours,” said co-founder Shane McCarthy.
