Men’s Journal — 10 American Whiskey Brands That Deserve Your Unrequited Love
Lost Lantern is a major first for American whiskey: a private labelling brand from husband and wife team Adam Polonski and Nora Ganley-Roper.

Bourbon Veach — Lost Lantern Independent Spirits
Some time ago, Matt and I were invited to do a virtual tasting with Nora Ganley-Roper and Adam Polonski, Founders of Lost Lantern Independent Spirits. They sent us sample bottles of six of their products and set up a Zoom meeting. What Nora and Adam have created is a company that purchases barrels from artisan distilleries across the nation and bottles them with that distillery’s name on the label. Their focus is to bring these distilleries to the public eye by showcasing really good barrels from those distilleries. It is a very good program and I hope that it is bringing success to these distilleries.
