For the second summer in a row, Lost Lantern, an American whiskey brand, is introducing a collection of carefully curated bottles from different bourbon distilleries in the country.

This release includes nine whiskies from 12 states across all three of its product lines:

  • The second edition of Lost Lantern’s multi-distillery blend, Far-Flung Bourbon II (Starlight Distillery from Indiana, Kings County Distillery from New York, Rich Grain Distilling Co. from Mississippi, Smooth Ambler from West Virginia and Wollersheim Distillery from Wisconsin)
  • Their Single Distillery Series, Mississippi Memory (a blend of multiple barrels from ghost distillery Rich Grain Distilling Co., a closed Mississippi distillery)
  • And seven single cask releases 

Two of these come from returning Lost Lantern partners: Corbin Cash in California and Boulder Spirits in Colorado, the distillery states. The other five are all first-time Lost Lantern partners: Woodinville Whiskey Co. in Washington, Union Horse Distilling Co. in Kansas, High Wire Distilling Co. in South Carolina, Leiper’s Fork Distillery in Tennessee and Rock Town Distillery in Arkansas.

Great Bourbon Comes From All Over

In 2023, Lost Lantern launched the “Summer of Bourbon” as their first collection focused solely on a single style of whiskey. The message then, and now, is simple: great bourbon now comes from all over the United States. Though the initial release of eight bottlings spanned several states and distilleries, according to the distillery, Lost Lantern Co-Founders Nora Ganley-Roper and Adam Polonski recognized that the subject warranted further exploration.

“This year, we want to encourage whiskey lovers to keep exploring the increasingly wide world of bourbon, in all the forms that it takes from coast to coast,” said Ganley-Roper in a news release.

This year’s collection is Lost Lantern’s largest, the distillery states. Because of that, Summer of Bourbon II will be released in two tranches:

  1. On Thursday, June 20, Lost Lantern blends Far Flung Bourbon II and Mississippi Memory will go on sale.
  2. On Thursday July 11, Lost Lantern Summer of Bourbon II Single Casks will be available for sale.

Whiskies in the collection will be available for purchase online at LostLanternWhiskey.com and Seelbachs.com, at select retailers in New York and California, and in the Lost Lantern tasting room in Vergennes, VT, according to the distillery.
