About Lost Lantern
Lost Lantern is one of few major independent bottlers in the U.S. Independent bottlers are businesses that buy casks from many producers and bottle, label, market and sell the spirits themselves. Independent bottlers are common, successful and profitable in the scotch and rum industries but much less so in the American whiskey industry. Lost Lantern, along with other independent bottlers Proof and Wood and Barrell Craft Spirits, is paving the way for future independent bottling businesses in the U.S.
