A Toast to the Gilded Age: American Craft Whiskey

Friday, October 5, 2018 7:00 p.m. Buy Tickets Members: $65 Public: $75

Smooth, bold and spicy! The art of American whiskey comes to the Driehaus Museum for a fun twist on spirits tasting. Drink your way through America’s craft history with FEW Spirits, an emerging premium producer located in the former home of the 19th century anti-drinking, Temperance Movement. Experts will guide you through tasting the complex notes of award-winning premium bourbon and rye whiskeys alongside creative cocktails, paired hors d’oeuvres and live music. All guests must be 21.


FEW Spirits is a craft distillery located within city limits of the former epicenter of the Temperance Movement. Both their philosophy and brand are infused with history, paying homage to the entrepreneurial spirit of Chicago, along with its influence on American innovation. Bottle imagery is based on icons from the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition.
