A taste of Scotland… Chicago-style.

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 five years he has grown to three Whiskies, three Gins, and seven employees whose motto is "By the Few, for the Few."

FEW Single Malt is only offered a few times per year. So it’s technically their "fourth" Whisky product… a stepsister to their White, Rye, and Bourbon Whiskeys. And as if producing a Single Malt in the good ‘ol United States of America isn’t special enough, Paul and the team took it one step further. Instead of using peat smoke like some distilleries in Scotland, they air dry most of the malt naturally and smoke the rest over cherry wood. Paul says that’s where the "earthy" notes come from. One thing is certain, at a proper 46.5% ABV this easy-drinking dram will deliver the flavor.

Smartass Corner: 
FEW Spirits has a nice ring to it, but it is also a poke in the eye to governmental kill-joys. You see, F. E. W. are the initials of Francis Elizabeth Willard who was a leader of the Prohibition movement in Evanston back in the day.

FEW’s Master Distiller Paul Hletko overturned century-old prohibition laws to become Evanston’s first distiller of grain spirits within the city limits.
George Washington was a man of many talents being both a military braniac and the First President of the United States. Interestingly, he also became the largest Whiskey producer in the United States after leaving the politics.
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.
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.
Corn Whiskey is a commercial product that must contain at least 80% corn, be distilled at less than 80% ABV (160 proof), and, if wood-aged, may be aged in either used or new un-charred barrels.
Rye Whiskey is made from mash that is at least 51 percent rye. The grain gives Rye Whiskey its spicy, sometimes peppery, and bitter flavor. It was a big seller before Prohibition, and after decades in obscurity, it’s fashionable again. Fun fact: George Washington distilled Rye Whiskey at Mount Vernon.
