The whiskey was inspired by the two lanterns lit at Old North Church in Boston in 1775 that signaled to the Sons of Liberty that the British were coming by sea to Lexington and Concord to capture Samuel Adams and John Hancock and hang them as traitors.
This one-of-a-kind premium whiskey is crafted by triple distilling our Boston Lager at BMD’s distillery in Great Barrington, MA, followed by four years of barrel aging in vintage bourbon barrels, giving the distilled lager distinct notes of malt and piney hop flavors.
“After anxiously waiting for more than four years, we are excited to finally share the fruits of our teamwork for craft whiskey and beer lovers to enjoy. Two Lanterns American Whiskey is truly a labor of love and we had a lot of fun working with Jim and the Sam Adams team,” said Chris Weld, founder of Berkshire Mountain Distillers.
Throughout the months of November and December, Chris Weld and BMD will hold more than 40 tasting events for Two Lanterns American Whiskey. Once fully emptied, the American oak barrels used for aging the whiskey will make the trip back to the Samuel Adams Boston Brewery, where they will be used for a yet-to-be-named barrel-aged beer.
