Starlight Distillery Bundle
The Lost Lantern Summer Collection emphasizes comparison, showing the full range of the distilleries we work with and what we as an independent bottler add to that conversation. All seven casks in the Summer Collection are meant to be points of comparison: sometimes to each other, sometimes to previous Lost Lantern releases, sometimes to the distillery’s own releases.
This bundle is a way to purchase both of our Starlight Distillery single casks at a small discount.
We hand-selected these casks from Starlight Distillery in Starlight, Indiana. Ted Huber started Starlight in 2001 to capture the flavors of Indiana grain and fruit from the place his family has farmed for seven generations. Starlight Distillery is part of Huber’s Orchard & Winery, an Indiana institution since 1843, and is in fact a revival of a family distilling legacy: the Hubers were distilling brandy in the area way back in the early 1800s.
Although Starlight is just across the Ohio River from Kentucky and only about 20 miles from Louisville, the climate, conditions, and culture of southern Indiana are quite distinct from their better-known counterparts just to the south. Located at one of the highest points in Southern Indiana, the distillery sees harsher weather conditions and bigger daily temperature swings than the surrounding area, contributing to the development of flavor in the barrel.
The first of these casks is a 4-year-old straight rye whiskey from our Winter Collection. The second is a 4-year-old straight bourbon whiskey from our Summer Collection. Both are emblematic of Starlight’s core style and a great way to experience their whiskey at cask strength.
