The Lost Lantern Spring 2021 Single Cask Collection
The Spring Collection shines a light on whiskies that represent three rapidly emerging regional styles: Southwest single malt, Texas bourbon, and cool-climate rye. Each of these whiskies are cask strength, non-chill-filtered, and labeled with full transparency on where they come from—and why we’re excited about that cask and distillery.
Our Stance On Small Barrels
Up until now, everything we’ve released was matured in barrels that were at least 53 gallons, some of them even larger. That’s true for both our first four single casks and all twelve barrels that went into our American Vatted Malt.
That’s changing with our next single malt release. Our Spring 2021 Single Cask Collection includes three mesquite-smoked single malt whiskies from Tucson, Arizona-based Whiskey Del Bac. We’re incredibly excited about all of them: each one is a unique take on a rapidly emerging style of American whiskey, and they deeply reflect where they come from: the Sonoran Desert, one of the very hottest regions in the United States. All three whiskies were aged, not in 53-gallon barrels, but in 15-gallon barrels.
