Years after his death, George Jones' legacy continues to live on not just in country music, but through a unique alcoholic beverage named after one of The Possum's biggest hits.

Jones' wife, Nancy, was the one who pushed the idea of creating a line of drinks named in Jones' honor.

George always wanted to own his own brand of whiskey,” Nancy says in a statement for the George Jones Museum. “This was one of the promises I made to him before he died, that I’d make that dream come true.” 

"White Lightning" Moonshine and Vodka, named after Jones' 1959 number one hit single, has only been available at the George Jones Museum in downtown Nashville up to this point. But that may change soon.

The demand for the products to be sold at other locations as been so great, that the company says “plans are underway to choose the right partner to create an international footprint."

Although there is no set date for "White Lighting" to hit the shelves, the company is working on a plan that will allow the product to be distributed on an international scale.

While you wait for "White Lighting" to show up in your local store, enjoy watching Jones perform the song that inspired the drink, live in the video below.

Hopefully it won't be too long before "White Lighting" makes its way into stores!


Well in North Carolina way back in the hills me and my old pappy and he had him a still
He brewed white lightnin till the sun went down
Then he'd fill up a jug and he'd pass it around
Mighty mighty pleasin my pappy's corn squeezin
Well the G men T men revenoers too searchin for the place where he made his brew
They were lookin tryin' to book him but my pappy kept on cookin

Well I asked my old pappy why he called his brew
White lightnin stead of mountain dew
I took a little sip and right away I knew
And my eyes bugged out and my face turned blue
Light has started flashin thunder started krashin 
Well the G men T men...

Well a city slicker came and he said I'm tough
I think I want to taste that powerful stuff
He took one slug and he drank it right down I heard him moanin' as he hit the ground
Mighty mighty pleasin you'r pappy's corn squeezin 
Well the G men T men.
