Pink Lightning begins with a base of an all-corn mash. Local, organic Santa Barbara strawberries are added for an additional distillation. Once that process is complete, the spirit is infused with more fresh strawberries. No artificial colors or flavors are used.
Flavored WhiskeyWhiskey flavored with natural or artificial flavors and labeled with the (pre)dominant flavor(s). Can be made either with or without the addition of sugar. Bottled at 30% ABV or higher.
"There's no shortage of dense, stewed straberry aromas on the nose. Along with a fair amount of nose-tingling heat. Tempting as the aromas may be, things dart in many different directions on the palate. Sharp and tart strawberry candy tries to live in harmony with bitter and hot ethyl-alcohol. There's hardly any sweetness at all to carry these intense and sometimes harsh cough syrup flavors. While it's admirable this product is legit in its use of actual distilled fruit, one can't help but wish some residual sugar would help make the medicine go down. "
