Subject: RE: Folklore: White lightnin' - what is it?
At the McCormick Distillery in Weston MO we were told that white lightning was the clear alcoholic liquor which goes into barrels to be aged and to turn into whisky. The liquor picks up color and flavor from the barrels.
The phrase may mean something different when it comes to moonshine, of course.
Don't ever drink any moonshine.
