FEW American Gin (750 ml)
Based on the American gins that we’ve tasted over the years, we would say that on the whole, those that are deemed classic are by traditional London Dry standards actually not so much so. If you could allow us a gross generalisation we would also mention that they tend to be more citrus heavy.
It’s ironic that the F.E.W Gin range is made in the town of Evanston, Illinois, as it is also the same town that lays claim to being the birthplace of the Women’s Temperance Movement(an influential protagonist in the story of Prohibition). The gins are certainly different, not only from a flavour perspective but also the distillery’s experiments and one-off bottlings too. It would be an understatement to say that this gin has our curiosity at fever pitch…
