Product details

FEW Spirits is based in Evanston, Illinois, a city which has strong historical connections with distilling and alcohol — though not in the most positive way! The distillery describes its home as the birthplace of Prohibition (a law which it was under for over 100 years) and the home of temperance, a movement which also promoted abstinence from alcohol in the 1800s.

In a rather tongue-in-cheek move, founder Paul Hletko named his distillery
after the initials of Frances Elizabeth Willard, a key figure in the women’s temperance movement. Not letting history deter him, he made it instead, as FEW was the first distillery in Evanston in 160 years! This is its Rye whiskey boasting a mash bill of 70% rye, 20% corn, and 10% malted barley, so while there’s a good helping of spice in here, it’s also wonderfully fruity and earthy.
