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!

Meet actress Linda Gray, star of the classic TV show Dallas, and get your bottles of J.R. Ewing Private Reserve Bourbon autographed. Every batch of J.R. Ewing bourbon is aged four years in newly charred American oak barrels and is carefully handcrafted to maintain notes of caramel, toasted vanilla and light fruit flavors. We’re just happy J.R. was willing to share his bourbon with all of us. Who knew payback from JR could actually be a good thing?
