Lost Lantern Whiskey

An American Independent Bottler

Lost Lantern is an independent bottler of American whiskey, inspired by a long Scottish tradition. Our founders, Nora and Adam, spent a year traveling across the United States in search of great whiskey. They criss-crossed the country, visiting over a hundred distilleries in dozens of states, and meeting the brave founders and distillers who bet their livelihoods for a chance to make whiskey… often in places where spirits haven’t been made in a hundred years or more.

The best whiskey reflects where it’s made, how it’s made, what it’s made from, and who made it. Lost Lantern’s mission is to shine a light on those whiskies and the independent spirits who make them.


Our Whiskies

Hand selected

We search for and find the brightest lights in American distilling from all across the United States. Our carefully chosen casks will help you discover them too.

Expertly blended

Our blends are meticulously created from whiskies sourced from multiple distilleries, intended to reveal the breadth of what American whiskey can be.

One of a kind

Everything we release is limited, often to a single cask. Our whiskies are snapshots of moments in time. Once they’re gone, they’re gone.

A New World of American Whiskey

There are over 2,000 distilleries in the United States, and more than 95% of them opened in the 21st century. Many of these distilleries are making whiskey in unique ways and unique climates, creating whiskies that reflect a genuine sense of place. 

But there’s far more whiskey out there than any one person could ever try on their own. We put in the work to help whiskey lovers discover the shining stars of American whiskey. And we collaborate closely with those distilleries to help whiskey lovers get their hands on whiskies that are truly unique.

An Ode to Lost Lantern Far-Flung Rye

A lot of you ask us how we put together our multi-distillery blends. When blending, we usually let the whiskey direct itself.
