Women Who Whiskey is an global experimental whiskey club for women.
Both for amateurs and connoisseurs, Women Who Whiskey gives our members the opportunity to learn about varieties of whiskeys and cocktail culture, and to join a network of like-minded women with a taste for curiosity and strong drinks. We host events in different venues around the Bay Area and Seattle, where members can try new spirits, discuss mixology with seasoned bartenders, and enjoy the company of other whiskey-loving ladies.
Another element that makes Women Who Whiskey unique is that although it is a club for women, and most of our events are women only, we do have regular "Gentlemen Edition" events, in which the ladies can invite guy friends and significant others to join. Not only does this inject a little variety into our events, but I think it works toward growing the space for women in the "man's world" of whiskey. By socializing and drinking whiskey together, we're normalizing it as something that's a matter of taste more than a matter of gender.
As the club continues to grow and evolve, our events may draw a bigger crowd and forge different kinds of relationships among members and with venues. But I'll endeavor to never lose the spirit with which it started: women getting together over a whiskey.
