Breaking news: FEW spirits are coming

July 26, 2011 at 9:34 pm

July 26, 2011 — Exclusive to The Local Beet — Evanston’s FEW Spirits, the area’s newest craft distillery, inked its distribution deal this afternoon, according to distiller Paul Hletko. That means FEW’s excellent hand made White Whiskey and its  complex version of Gin will be available at a small, select number of outlets within the next two or three weeks.

Ironically, FEW makes its spirits just a mile or so down the street from the house of Francis Elizabeth Willard (FEW), founder of the Women’s Christian Temperance Union. Is FEW’s name a tribute to her, or an acknowledgement that they intend to make just a FEW bottles of high-end liquors?

We’ll have more on FEW in the next FEW weeks.
