After aging the rye, Hletko and his team of distillers fill each bottle by hand, affixed with an artistic label inspired by the psychedelic rock group, the Flaming Lips. Music industry designer Justin Helton approached the folks at FEW about the partnership. A long-time Flaming Lips fan who has also done graphic design work for Ween, Phish, and the Black Keys among others, Helton wanted to create a special product dedicated to one of his favorite bands.
Upon release, Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne remarked: “Whiskey … it’s such a volatile drink. Upon pouring a drink it’s like accepting that you may become a werewolf … And really ... Who doesn't want to become a werewolf ??? Ha.” Here’s hoping this rye doesn’t actually turn you into a werewolf, that might be fun for you but it would be decidedly terrifying for everyone else. Perhaps it will inspire in you some level of transcendence nonetheless.
This is a limited release of 5,000 bottles. Get yours today!
As American as the bald eagle, rye whiskey was first brewed in the American Northeast in the 1600s. Even George Washington distilled it after leaving the Oval Office, so there’s no way of denying its origin. It’s distinguished from bourbon for its original and unique spicy notes.
By law, rye whiskey must be made from at least 51% rye grain, aged in new and charred oak barrels for at least two years, and bottled at no more than 62,5% ABV.
