Repeal Day: Celebrate with FEW Binny’s Handpicks

Tagged:

Celebrate the legalization of drinking with a sip of our hand selected whiskies from FEW Spirits. The Whiskey Hotline traveled all the way to Evanston to visit FEW Spirits where we selected a single barrel rye, a 3 barrel blended rye and a 3 barrel blended bourbon. Some say FEW takes its name from Prohibition advocate Frances E. Willard. Few Spirits has gained a name for themselves among enthusiasts both locally and even abroad as a true grain to glass distillery. From their gin to their bourbon and rye whiskies, the craft shines through. Additionally, their ryes make for an especially flavorful Manhattan!
