Arkansas Lightning is corn whiskey or what some might call moonshine. Of course, moonshine is the name for illegal whiskey so we called ours Arkansas Lightning.
Our Arkansas Lightning is double distilled from only the finest Arkansas Corn and Wheat in a solid copper pot still.
Bottled in two sizes:
375ml – 125 proof
750ml – 110 proof
Available in liquor stores everywhere.

Bold aromas of wet grain sack, crushed whole nut, and crusty artisanal raisin bread with a vibrant, silky dry-yet-fruity medium-full body and a hot and spicy dusty gravel road finish. Opens up to some attractive macadamia nut brittle and spice cake notes with a touch of water. Very interesting and distinctive; will be great in cocktails. (tasted on Feb-24-2011)

89.5 – Superbly made. Clean, oily and very impressive. Intrigued by the vaguest hint of sweet fresh shrimp on the nose. Will make a fine whiskey if placed in high quality oak. 62.5%. New, clear spirit pot distilled from Arkansas corn and wheat mash.
