American Vatted Malt Edition No. 1

One of a kind, but first in a line of spirits to come

Lost Lantern American Vatted Malt Edition No. 1 is one of the first blends of single malts ever made in the United States. More than that, it represents the whiskey world’s true spirit of collaboration and harmony. We brought together the founders and distillers behind some of the country’s most distinctive single malts, all of whom hand-selected barrels for an in-person collaborative blending session. Over the course of a single marathon day, we worked, tasted, and blended together. The result was this unique and special blend.
