FEW Spirits blended their three core Whiskies into one new American classic.

Paul Hletko’s grandfather lost his Czechoslovak brewery to the Nazi’s in World War II and never got it back. Paul was doing home brewing and wanted to go into business for himself and took his family history and experience to heart, founding FEW Spirits in 2011. Ever the rebel, he opened his "grain to glass" craft business in Evanston, Illinois — the birthplace of the temperance movement — from a small building whose only entryway is through a back alley. And we are all glad he did. Over the last eight years, FEW Spirits has grown to three Whiskies, three Gins, and a handful of employees whose motto is "By the Few, for the Few."

FEW American Straight Whiskey is a blend of FEW’s other award-winning signature Spirits. They take their innovative cherrywood-smoked Single malt and marry it with their Straight Bourbon and Straight Rye Whiskies. The exact ratio of the blend is not disclosed, but it is bottled at a perfect 46% ABV and has a handful of Gold and Double Gold Medals and was rated as high as 94 points at the Ultimate Spirits Challenge. It’s like getting winning Whiskies in a single dram.

Moonshine Whiskey is distilled from a varied mix of corn and sugar and is aged in Mason jars and jugs for the length of time it takes the customers to get home.
An un-aged American Whisky is often called “white dog.”Sour Mash is the fermentation process by which a percentage of a previous fermentation is added to a new batch as a "starter" to get the fermentation going and maintain a level of consistency from batch to batch. A sweet mash means that only fresh yeast is added to a new batch to start fermentation.
