Character Goatson
The Temperance undertaker.
 
From the city of Evanston, Illinois, where the Temperance movement originates, comes a craft distillery that put a stop to long-standing dry laws in these parts. Situated in the backside alley of a former chop shop, Paul Hletko and his skilled team are crafting the finest spirits made from Corn, Rye and Barley. The distillery’s single purpose is to bring the best products made from the best grains, perfectly matured and finished under one roof.
 
Now to give you a brief backstory. In the 19th century a woman named Francis Elizabeth Willard was elected President of the Chicago Christian Temperance Movement. She embarked on a decade-long crusade to prohibit alcohol in the US, and had succeeded. Mr. Hletko worked hard and lobbied against the law, and eventually, made it go away. Ironically, and hilariously, he’s named his craft spirits after Francis (FEW are the initials of her name). Bold move for sure.
 
FEW Rye Whiskey is aged in air dried oak barrels and is a meld of Rye, Corn and Malt in its mash. To be particular, 70% Rye, 20% corn and the rest consists of malted Barley. This makes for an exceptionally good Rye Whiskey, one that its creators are proud enough to call “the renaissance of Rye”. Young, and fierce yet really smooth around the corners. An impressive Whiskey from a genuine distillery with a bright future.

Rye - think of it as Bourbon's edgier cousin. It’s known for what many call a spicy or fruity flavor. Rye (distilled from at least 51% Rye) is not on the sweet side and tends to have a spicier body. That’s why the character of a cocktail made from Rye, instead of Bourbon, is drier.
A decade ago there were only 6 brands of Rye Whiskey hailing from Kentucky, nowadays there are more than 50!
George Washington famously loved his Rye Whiskey. In fact, after he served as the first president of the United States, he returned to his farm at Mount Vernon and started a small Rye distillery of his own.
FEW’s Master Distiller Paul Hletko overturned century-old prohibition laws to become Evanston’s first distiller of grain spirits within the city limits.
Rye sparked the first revolution after the American Independence. It was called the Whiskey Rebellion, and it arose when the government tried to tax Whiskey and enforce the taxation on distillers. The lesson here? Don't mess with a Whiskey drinker's dram.
