FEW Rye Whiskey

About FEW Spirits

Based on Evanston, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago, FEW pride themselves on being a grain-to-glass craft distillery with all ingredients sourced as locally as possible. Evanston was a dry city for almost a century, being home to the Temperance Movement led by Frances Elizabeth Willard. The distillery named themselves as an ironic nod to her when they opened in 2011 as the first legal distillery in Evanston since the prohibition. Though relatively young, FEW are already producing a range of award-winning gins and whiskies. The distillery uses two copper hybrid stills, one for whiskey and one for gin.
