Women have always been involved in whisky, from distilling at home to running large-scale operations. There was the legendary Bessie from Laphroaig, and Elizabeth Cumming, who used to run Cardhu distillery for years, just to name a few.
But now women in the whisky business are more important than ever! There are several whisky bloggers, whisky writers, master blenders, brand ambassadors, managers and even women who own their own whisky brand!
