Evanston's FEW Distillery has done it again!! Started in 2011, FEW crafts their spirits based on recipes from the pre-prohibition era which was known as "The Golden Age" of spirits. Their motto is that they're a "100% grain-to-glass distillery handcrafting, small-batch spirits made of equal parts craft and courage". FEW uses art inspired by the 1893 World's Fair on all of their labels because the fair was held in Chicago a few miles down the road from where the distillery currently site. The fair represented modernism showcasing new inventions in both the food/beverage industry as well as the industrial end of things such as moving walkways, the Ferris wheel, and electric powered fountains. Their newest release of FEW "Immortal" Rye begins with their award winning FEW Straight Rye Whiskey and the addition of cold-extracted "8 Immortals" tea from renowned Denver-based tea purveyor Tea Spot. The 8 Immortals Dancong oolong tea is based on the Chinese mythology of a group of Xian (immortals in English). The Xian were said to have been born in the Tang or Shang Dynasty and live on a group of five islands in the Bohai Sea including Mount Penglai. They represent the Taoist interest in achieving immortality which is linked with health and prosperity. Specifically, it is said that the Xian will appear at celebrations and special occasions such as weddings and birthdays. With an initial 6,000 bottles available nationwide the Xian is represented throughout with the infusion of the tea and the dragon on the label. Complex from nose to mouth, the mash bill consists of 70% rye, 20% corn and 10% malted barley with the 8 Immortals Dancong Oolong Tea being steeped in. Aromas of candied fruits and honey lead into a palate of ripe peaches, ripe dragon fruit, and toasted honey. The smooth mouthfeel showcases the same flavors carrying through the deep, velvety rich finish at 93 proof (46.5% ABV). There are NO additives or sugar added to this whiskey; it's all natural. Enjoy it on its own neat or substitute it into your favorite cocktail for a new twist!!
