Lost Lantern Whiskey

Mississippi Memory Rich Grain Distilling Co. Mississippi Straight Bourbon Whiskey

Lost and Found

Rich Grain Distilling was founded to create a whiskey that truly reflected Mississippi’s hot, humid climate. Although the distillery closed in 2020, the whiskey continued to age in Mississippi for several years, and it has achieved founder David Rich’s original vision: a true Mississippi bourbon, born of the Deep South.

We created this unique marriage of Rich Grain’s 5 and 7 year old Mississippi bourbons to honor the distillery’s vision and showcase the complexity of whiskey aged in a hot, humid climate. It has notes of graham cracker, roasted corn, and toasted oak on the nose, with chocolate cream pie, molasses, and big oak on the palate. a rich and dense bourbon.

This is our first-ever release from a ghost distillery partner (i.e., from a distillery that closed), and will be one of the only opportunities ever to try Rich Grain’s whiskey.

About Rich Grain Distilling

Once located in Canton, Mississippi, Rich Grain Distilling was founded to create a whiskey that truly reflected the state’s hot, humid climate. Founder David Rich worked with local farmers and made whiskey from Mississippi-grown corn. Sadly, the distillery closed in 2020, never recovering from the pandemic. Yet the whiskey the distillery had made continued to age in Mississippi for several years. In 2023, Lost Lantern acquired all the distillery’s remaining bourbon, and today we want to celebrate , and it has achieved founder David Rich’s original vision: a true Mississippi bourbon, born of the Deep South.

The distillery’s website is no longer functional, but this 2017 article gives more information on their vision.
