Is there anywhere you can recommend for whiskey
BM: Radiator Whiskey has a good local flight.
JB: First you should determine what kind of whiskey you
are looking for…having a basic outline and then finding a
staff that can cater to that. Liberty is great at that.

What upcoming events do you have planned for
Women Who Love Whiskey in 2016?
BM: I am really excited [about] doing a bus tour of local
distilleries and being able to taste all the whiskeys they
are putting out. We’ve done 2bar, we’ve done Westland,
but there are so many other ones.

What advice can you give to novice whiskey drinkers
who want to learn more about their pallet or
recognizing specific tasting notes?
JB: There’s one for everyone, if not 10. It’s more about
getting to know the person. The fun part about doing a
tasting is getting into that conversation. It’s such a vast
category, and if you don’t have someone to show you
around a little bit it can be overwhelming.
What’s the most rewarding part about Women Who
JB: Watching the friendships grow. There were times
when we never got the support that we needed or
wanted, or had the mentor that would have been
amazing to have. There are so many wonderful,
beautiful, strong women in this community that are
equally talented. This is about having a spot to come
together. At the end of the day, yes it’s about whiskey,
but really it’s about relationships.
BM: We had a Seattle Times article come out about
us, and after that article came out we started getting
all these messages like “I didn’t know there were other
women that like whiskey” or “none of my other friends
like whiskey.” It’s not just a bunch of women that love
whiskey; it’s community we’ve created. We’ve all
become friends, and we come together for these events
and have a good time. The way that the community has
responded has been more than we every anticipated.
We knew it was going to be good, and we knew it was
going to be fun; but we had no idea that it was going to
