Mosaic Construction Completes Renovations at FEW Distillery,Supporting Award-Winning Craft Spirits Production in Evanston

Mosaic Construction LLC, a full-service commercial and multifamily design-build firm, has completed renovations at FEW Distillery, a craft distillery with global distribution based at 918 Chicago Avenue in Evanston, Ill.—also known as the birthplace of Prohibition. Mosaic conducted a structural renovation to the 3,000-square-foot distillery, adding support to the barrel roof and bow trusses at the industrial-inspired whiskey production facility. 


FEW, a grain-to-glass distillery, became the first maker of whiskey and gin in Evanston since the U.S. Congress ended Prohibition nearly 100 years ago. The company opened its doors in 2011 at a former automotive “chop shop” with its entrance hidden in an alley next to the Purple Line “L” train. Thirteen years later, FEW’s popular products are distributed to purveyors of high-quality spirits around the world.


“Wanting to remain in Evanston, FEW’s owners decided to invest in structural upgrades to their unassuming industrial building,” said Ira Singer, Founder and Chief Marketing and Communications Officer at Mosaic Construction. “We transformed the space to meet FEW’s needs as they continue to produce innovative and award-winning whiskies and gins.”


The renovation led by Mosaic includes new steel columns, support beams, a concrete floor and electrical work. Moshe Calamaro and Associates (engineering), Battaglia Electric (electric), Twin Bros. Paving (concrete flooring) and GCS Roman Steel Work (steel) partnered with Mosaic on the project.


“Mosaic’s expertise ensured that our distillery operations can remain in the Evanston space we love and continue as a home for the production of our award-winning spirits,” said Riley Henderson, Head of Operations at FEW Spirits. “Working closely with Mosaic and its partners was an elevated experience, and we appreciate the personalized approach they took to restoring the original strength and beauty of our unique space.”
