Product details

Based in Evanston, Illinois, you’ll find FEW Spirits, spearheaded by founder Paul Hletko. Just outside of Chicago, Evanston isn’t the most likely place for a distillery in the USA, seeing as it was the home of Prohibition. FEW is also the initials of Frances Elizabeth Willard, a key figure in the Temperance Movement, which, Hletko maintains, is a total coincidence.

Although Prohibition was repealed in 1933, it remained a community, which made FEW the first distillery in Evanston since Prohibition when it opened in 2011. This is the flagship bourbon from the Illinois-based distillery, produced from a mash bill of 70% corn, 20% rye, and 10% malt, aged in barrels made from charred Minnesota white oak. The distillery prides itself on being grain to glass, producing all of its whiskey (and gin, as it happens) under its own roof.
