Proof66 Notes

Few White Whiskey is a whiskey with no apologies. Few Spirits reports that it is bottled "...exactly as it comes from the still with no frills." Few crafts it from a mash bill of 70% corn, 20% wheat, and 10% malted barley (making it a "wheated bourbon" style of grain bill) and declares that it is "intentionally left unfiltered" and that its "throwback" is meant to "showcase [its] quality grains and the craftsmanship of [its] masterful distillers. We're told that they don't consider this a "moonshine" because it meticulously crafted and shouldn't be considered an amateurish spirit! In order to avoid the moonshine label, they decant the spirit through newly charred American Oak barrels. We have opted to classify it in the unaged/moonshine group of whiskey simply to keep it in an appropriate peer group. 

Few White Whiskey was awarded a Double Gold Medal at the 2011 New York Wine and Spirits Competition

In a positive comment from DrinkSpirits.com, they said that Few White Whiskey "shows off some phenomenal craftsmanship in the quality of distillation. There are enough layers of complexity of flavor with the maltiness, sweetness, light spice, and subtle heat to make this interesting enough to sip straight. It also does very well over ice."

About the Producer: 

Few Spirits, founded by Paul Hletko, is an homage to the "timeless liquors of the past." It is based in Evanston, Illinois where they claim as the very birthplace of the (the late and unlamented) temperance movement... an article from the Chicago Reader cites dry rulings going all the way back to 1855. In fact, the FEW name is actually the initials of Frances Elizabeth Willard, who was the national president of the Women’s Christian Temperance Movement and figured largely in Prohibition (as well as the more laudable Women’s Suffrage). Thus, the name is a bit of an ironic joke. Should founder Paul Hletko and Frances Willard meet in heaven… well, that will be an interesting conversation. The spirits are batch distilled using American midwestern grain. Few Spirits says that when the first drop of liquor was made at their distillery it was the first legal drop of alcohol made in Evanston, IL.
