Illinois has just welcomed a new distillery to its roster of craft spirits. F.E.W Spirits, located in Evanston is a quality operation, creating some seriously tasty Gin and White Whiskey. Not only is FEW the first legal distillery in the city, but its name comes from the initials of Francis Elizabeth Willard, who lead the Temperance Party in Illinois. I was fortunate to have the opportunity to document their process for Julia Kramer’s recent article in Time Out Chicago. More info here.
