- Lonerider Spirits was born from Lonerider Brewing Company, one of the top 150 largest breweries in the U.S., and has the advantage of sharing that established branding.
For over ten years, Lonerider Brewing Company has been brewing North Carolina magic. Now, we've taken the established brand of Lonerider and used it to form a new company, Lonerider Spirits. We make innovative, unique whiskeys, as we will both purchase whiskey from spirit brokers and develop other high-quality libations from Lonerider beer recipes to make craft whiskey the likes of which most people have never tasted before.
If you think Lonerider beer is wild, wait until you taste Lonerider Spirits. So far we have brought to market a sherry cask finished bourbon, a bourbon finished in a beer barrel used for Russian nitro stout, a bourbon rested in tequila barrels, a liqueur made from beer mash, a whiskey-based RTD, and we'll be able to bring the same maverick approach we've always had to spirits. We plan to expand into the Southeast rapidly with the Lonerider beer network and with multiple locations.
