Made from a mixture of barley, maize and wheat, 'whissin' is short for 'whisky sin ('sin' means without in Spanish) alcohol' or if you didn't get that, 'whisky without alcohol'. To be honest it is impossible to imitate on the palate a sensation produced by a drink containing 40% alcohol. So Whissin has a different bouquet and is certainly sweeter, but Whissin is a substitute you can drink like whisky: neat, with ice or with mixers. You could you also have an alcohol free alternative of a Johnnie Ginger by adding a splash or two of Rochester Ginger which will also give you the burn sensation.
Whissin won the SIAL D'OR award for the best non-alcoholic drink in the world in 1998, but till now has not been available in Oz. But we've changed that.
This drink contains no artificial sweeteners and about 2.5 gms sugar per 100ml when combined with the recommended 6 parts ice.
