Lost Lantern Whiskey

Wollersheim Distillery Wisconsin Straight Bourbon

Bourbon from the North

Lost Lantern hand-selected this cask from Wollersheim Distillery in Wisconsin. With roots dating back to the 19th century, the family-owned winery and distillery has revived a long tradition of Wisconsin distilling. Its brandies and grain-to-glass whiskies truly reflect Wisconsin’s climate and long agricultural heritage.

This 5-year-old straight bourbon whiskey was made from 66% corn, 22% rye, and 12% malted barley, all locally grown. It has notes of leather, chocolate oranges, and pipe tobacco on the nose, and hints of chocolate mousse, dry grain, and spice-blackened meat on the palate. This is an intense and powerful northern bourbon. It is our first release from Wollersheim, from Wisconsin, and from the Upper Midwest.

About Wollersheim Distillery

With roots dating back to the 19th century, Wollersheim is a family-owned distillery that has revived a long tradition of Wisconsin distilling. Its brandies and grain-to-glass whiskies truly reflect Wisconsin’s climate and long agricultural heritage. It’s also home to a substantial winery, which has deep roots: in fact, some of their vineyards were originally planted by Agoston Haraszthy, who later made his way farther west and became one of the most important pioneers of the California wine industry! The Wollersheim family bought the property in the 1970s and revived the winery, which had been inactive for decades. The distillery followed in 2015, and has always focused on both whiskey and brandy. That’s only fitting for the Wisconsin palate: the state drinks far more brandy than anywhere else in the United States!
