Why We Like It
'A big beast of a whiskey packed with flavour: brown sugar, peach iced tea, sandalwood and nutmeg. I love this whiskey for its attitude!'
Dawn Davies MW, TWE head buyer
By Paul Hletko (FEW distiller)
This American whiskey is neither bourbon nor rye, and is an intriguing dram – a meeting of spice, chocolate, mole and caramel. At 50% ABV, it carries a lot of flavour. It's sweet upfront, with a long, pleasantly spicy finish. A hint of smoke overlays this full-flavoured, unique dram.
FEW was established in Evanston, 12 miles north of Chicago in 2011. Founder Paul Hletko named his distillery ‘in honour of' Frances Elizabeth Willard, a key figure in the city's temperance movement, which banned the drinking of alcohol in the city – a decision not reversed until the late 1990s.
FEW produces a range of whiskeys and gins, along with limited releases such as grappa.

Quite simply, it's essential if you're in the Windy City.

Was not convinced but have tried their excellent rye and was blown away. A huge whiskey, and very difficult to pin down. Not Bourbon, not rye, very smooth and easy to drink but packed with big flavors and body. Finished it rather too quickly with a couple of mates who were also impressed.
I love it!
