Lost Lantern’s Whiskey Storytelling

Whiskey is more than a drink; it’s a story in a bottle, waiting to be told.

On Episode 10 of the Cocktails With Friends Podcast, we feature Lost Lantern Whiskey, a brand born from a dream and a road trip. Eager to explore the rich tapestry of American whiskey, they embarked on an eight-month journey across the country. Despite many distilleries being confined to local or state-wide sales, Lost Lantern was on a mission to discover and showcase these exceptional, yet often overlooked, whiskey makers.

With over 2,000 distilleries across the United States, Lost Lantern has the luxury of being selective. Their extensive screening process ensures they partner only with distilleries that don’t just make great whiskey but also have compelling stories to share.

Lost Lantern knows it isn’t just about finding the best-tasting whiskey but discovering whiskeys with narratives. It’s not solely the age or the barrels that matter, but the experiences and stories accompanying each glass. A whiskey bottle’s label is more than a sticker; it introduces a story steeped in history and passion. Each sip is like turning a page in a captivating novel, with flavors like vanilla or smoke adding depth to the tale.

But the essence of whiskey lies in its power to bring people together. It’s about the shared moments, the clinking of glasses, and the collective enjoyment. These experiences become part of our treasured memories.

For the ultimate shared whiskey experience, try the 50/50 Black Manhattan:

  • 1.5 ounces Lost Lantern Desert Dessert
  • 1.5 ounces Brucato Amaro
  • 3 Dashes Owl & Whale Orange Bitters

Combine all ingredients in a mixing tin, add ice, stir for 30 seconds, and strain into a coupe with an orange twist and Luxardo cherry.

The beauty of whiskey stories is their ever-changing nature, like a favorite book that never grows old. Whether it’s a cozy night indoors or a relaxed evening under the stars, each unique bottle of whiskey brings a new dimension to the story, making the taste uniquely different each time.
