White Lightning (cider)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
White Lightning was a brand of white cider brewed by Scottish Courage in the UK from the early 1990s until 2009. It was known for its high alcohol strength and low price. White Lightning was popular with those wishing for alcoholic intoxication at a minimum price.
When originally released White Lightning had 8.5% alcohol by volume, which was later reduced to 7.5% then to 5.5% in May 2009.
At the end of 2009, Heineken (Scottish Courage's parent company) decided to discontinue the manufacture of White Lightning in order to cease encouraging irresponsible drinking.[
