Founded in 2011 by Paul Hletko FEW Spirits is located outside of Chicago in Evanston, Illinois. The name is derived from Frances Elizabeth Willard’s who ironically was a staunch supporter of prohibition and who played a part in ensuring Evanston became a dry city in 1855 ( the law was passed prohibiting the sale of alcohol within four miles of the newly constructed university, to protect students’ delicate moral sensibilities ). It was not until 1972 that Evanston’s prohibition ended and FEW’s distillery was the first to produce grain spirits within the city limits in over 150 years.

FEW ferment, distill and age everything on-site, to quote their founder Paul Hletko “If we can’t grow it ourselves, we buy it locally and if we can’t buy it locally we buy it from friends.” The grains used are “grown less than 100 miles from the distillery and many other ingredients are sourced from even closer”.
