What they say:


“Out of darkness, comes white. The golden age of whiskey is still very much alive, but some of us prefer a little adventure. Bottled before it meets the barrel, this white whiskey retains an unadulterated flavor with a crisp, clean bite. We stand by tradition, but a little change can be good. FEW White Whiskey.”


“This is a white whiskey (or white dog) from the FEW Spirits Distillery, white whiskey is un-aged and has a particularly rich character. This white whiskey is made of a mash of 70% corn, 20% wheat and 10% two row malt. Although this can be drunk neat it works excellently as a base spirit in many cocktails. FEW Spirits hails from Evanston in the United States of America, a city that suffered Prohibition for over one hundred years thanks to many of its advocates hailing from its dry streets. Thankfully Evanston is now home to this excellent craft distillery which takes its name ironically from the initials of Frances Elizabeth Willard, a key figure in the Temperance Movement.”

What I say:

Sampled during Water of Life Society (WoLS) meeting 30/01/2014 – Edinburgh Whisky Blog (EWB) Prohibition Tasting, sadly I couldn’t finish this one – a little too harsh neat and spirit/chemical alcohol notes with water.
