Dogfish Head Distilling has announced the launch of its first single malt whiskey, Let’s Get Lost. Beginning in early August, Let’s Get Lost will be available in 750ml bottles in Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey and Washington.
Dogfish Head Let’s Get Lost is an American single malt whiskey distilled from a custom 4 grains blend of Pale Malt, Crystal Malt, Coffee Kiln Malt, and high ratio of Applewood smoke Malt. Bottled at 51% ABV and fermented with doggie ale yeast, to add a banana sweet note, the whiskey is aged onsite for more than three years in charred oak barrels.
“All our scratch-made spirits are crafted alongside our beers using the same all-natural, high-quality culinary ingredients, each taking ample time and a whole lot of thoughtful experimentation to develop, test and perfect,” said Sam Calagione, Dogfish Head Founder & Brewer. “Let’s Get Lost has been a multi-year labor-of-love made possible by the hard work and ingenuity of our awesomely talented distilling co-workers. Last year, around the holidays, we released a limited quantity of Let’s Get Lost at our coastal Delaware properties and it sold out almost immediately! That’s when we knew we were onto something, so we submitted samples toWhiskey Advocate and the L.A. Spirits Awards. Respectively, Let’s Get Lost earned a 92-point “Outstanding” rating and claimed aGold Medal in the American Single Malt Category.”
One of America’s earliest craft distilleries, Dogfish Head Distilling Co. began distilling scratch-made spirits in 2002. Since then, the distillery has created an array of vodkas, gins, rums, whiskeys and more. In addition to its full-proof spirits, earlier this year, the brand introduced a lineup of three ready-to-drink Canned Cocktails – Blueberry Shrub Vodka Soda, Strawberry & Honeyberry Vodka Lemonade and Cherry Bergamot Whiskey Sour.
“At Dogfish Head, we are firm believers in the importance of exploring goodness,” noted Innovation Manager James Montero. “Let’s Get Lost invites drinkers on that journey with us, encouraging them to get lost in the liquid’s alluring layers of flavors and then, to share that experience with their friends and family for even more enjoyment.Let’s Get Lost is – no doubt – our most robust, high-end and in my opinion, our most special whiskey yet and I can’t wait to see what folks think of it.”
