I was watching this weeks episode of Hotmixology and was introduced to Louisiana Lightning a clear whiskey has a tiny sliver of lightning in every bottle. The story behind Louisiana Lightning is all about “old Mr. Dufour” in a lightning strike in Amite City, Louisiana where he walked up, touched the lightning bolt “Silky smooth although it does give one a bit of a tingle.” After saying that he sliced off a piece of the lightning and the claim now is that there is a little tiny sliver of lightning in every bottle to make it “silky smooth.” Louisiana Lightning is an award winning corn-grain white whiskey distilled in Amite, Louisiana. Below are listed some of the many awards Louisiana Lightning Whiskey has received.
