23rd Anniversary Whiskey
This exclusive release of FEW whiskey has been created for the 23rd anniversary of legendary Chicago bar Delilah's, located just a few miles away from the distillery. A combination of bourbon, rye and single malt whiskeys, this is sweet, spicy and gently smoky.
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.
