Lost Lantern Whiskey

Ironroot Republic Texas Straight Corn Whiskey

Over-the-top and welcoming, just like Texas

We’ll be honest: We didn’t plan to have a straight corn whiskey as one of our first releases. But then we visited Ironroot Republic Distilling on the North Texas plains, just a few miles from the Oklahoma border. We were hunting bourbon, not straight corn whiskey. But the Likarish brothers, who run the distillery, insisted we try this cask. Then they insisted again. They said it was special. They were right.

This cask’s incredibly rich flavors — bold and spicy, but with hints of violet — represent Texas whiskey at its finest: over-the-top and welcoming at the same time. More than that, it represents exactly what we want to accomplish with Lost Lantern. There isn’t very much of it, and even now corn whiskey isn’t very well known, but this cask is truly one-of-a-kind.

About Ironroot Republic Distilling

More than a century ago, the small Texas town of Denison saved the French wine industry. The tough roots of the area’s indigenous grapes could survive the devastating phylloxera mite, and by grafting Old World vines onto those roots, French wine came back to life. The name Ironroot Republic honors the town’s legacy. The Likarish family, which runs the distillery, pairs the unique regional climate and the extensive use of heirloom strains of corn with Old World distilling and aging traditions. Their bourbons and corn whiskies showcase compelling, elegant flavors rarely seen in American whiskey, and Ironroot Republic has quickly become one of the country’s most sought-after whiskies.
