Lost Lantern Whiskey


A Brilliant Flame

Named “BEST AMERICAN BLENDED MALT” at the 2024 World Whiskies Awards!

Imagine sitting around a bright, hot fire on a very dark and very cold night, the flames your only source of light and warmth. Imagine the smell of the fire, the crackling heat of the air in front of you. That is the essence that FLAME seeks to conjure.

This is a blend of smoked American whiskies that together evoke brightness and warmth. It brings together mesquite-smoked single malts from Whiskey Del Bac in Arizona and Santa Fe Spirits in New Mexico to create a warm, bright, and smoky whiskey. It has notes of charred oranges, chili chocolate, and smoked meats.

Blends of peated single malts have existed in Scotland for hundreds of years. After all, peat was the native fuel originally used to malt barley. It is still used widely, now all over the world, not because it is needed as a fuel, but for its heritage and its distinctive flavor.

But peat is hardly the only fuel that can be used to malt barley and imbue it with a distinctive flavor. Mesquite wood is another, and unlike peat, it’s a truly American tradition. Mesquited whiskies are made in exactly the same way as peated whiskies… they just use mesquite wood instead of peat. This wood, native to the American Southwest, has a distinctive flavor profile that evokes warmth, spice, citrus, and the desert. FLAME is an exploration of this new style of distinctively American smoke.

Smoked whiskies take many forms. This one is A BRILLIANT FLAME.
