FEW Standard Issue Gin - 75cl - 57% ABV
Made in the town of Evanston, Illinois, an ironic name perhaps considering that this is also the same town that lays claim to being the birthplace to the Women’s Temperance Movement (an influential protagonist in the story of Prohibition). This is just one of the many things that will grab your attention. The gin is certainly different considering not only the liquid 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
F.E.W Standard Issue Gin (named as a nod to military and navy rationing and equipment) is the perfect example of a new interpretation of Navy Strength gin. It has a bright sweet and spicy taste with lemon bursting through on a creamy base. The finish is long and sweet, with liquorice prominent. The grain is also apparent throughout – almost as if it were the signature style for all F.E.W gins.
