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.

Eugene,
It is an ok drink that is not worthy of note. It is an acquired taste that is not for me.
John
John,
Pretty good, but i need other ryes to campare.
James
James,
Similar to Breckenridge in flavor with a harsher bite but the smoother finish and simpler, better flavor. But it's similar in that the combination of sweets (especially honey) and in this case barley end up making it taste like cough syrup. Will not buy again.
Edgar

Mild and does well with a splash of hot water
Marvin
Marvin,
I really enjoyed this whiskey. This is something that I'll for sure purchase. The honey and caramel is the perfect amount. The spice at the end is perfect. I enjoy dry flavors so this was right up my alley. I usually don't like the whiskey, but this has changed my mind.
