Two Lanterns Whiskey
Samuel Adams may have started out as a small craft brewery, but it’s grown into a very successful national brand. For founder and brewer Jim Koch, working with the much smaller Berkshire Mountain Distillers was a perfect match. “There are many parallels between making spirits and brewing beer,” he says. “Marrying the two not only makes sense, but will also produce a drink that beer and spirits lovers alike can enjoy.” The result of this marriage is Two Lanterns whiskey, triple distilled from Samuel Adams’ flagship Boston Lager, and aged for four years in bourbon barrels. The barrels will find a second life, as they will head back to the brewery to be used to age beer that will be released at some point in the future.
