I’m a Whiskey Woman and so are many of my friends. We like to drink whiskey, learn about whiskey and hunt for rare and unique bottles of whiskey. What we don’t like is that, somewhere in time, the world of whiskey became a boys club.

In this podcast, Women & Whiskey: Stop Mansplaining Me, we’ll talk with trail blazing women who are shattering the glass ceiling of the whiskey industry. We’ll hear from master distillers, master blenders, brand ambassadors… all the women from field to glass who are shaping the whiskey world today.

Join me for a taste and a chat with some fascinating whiskey women.
