Down a dark back alley in Evanston, Illinois, you will find an old chop-shop making flavorful whiskey and gin. From grain-to-glass and wild a bold, Chicago-style twist. Proof, as ever, that appearances can be deceptive.
FEW makes handcrafted, small-batch spirits, born in the home of temperance. For nearly a century, Evanston was a dry city. FEW Spirits founder Paul Hletko recognized the laws were in need of a dire change, and so he fought to have these laws overturned, with FEW becoming the first distiller of grain spirits in the city limits.
FEW Spirits: Made of equal parts craft and courage, and always 100% grain-to-glass.
