The @womenwhowhiskey club started in New York in 2010 founded by @juliaritztoffoli . In 2014 Amy and I (Jo) were flatmates and we both started to occasionally sip whisky as a night cap and a way for us to tell each other’s day, our first bottle in our flat was a Bowmore Black Rock, not our introduction to whisky, but the first bottle we would sip together. .
Once we heard about Women Who Whiskey we wrote an email to Julia if we could open a chapter in Geneva and that was done in February 2015 🎉🎉🎉! Our first event was at @bardunord and we had to beg our friends to join, now 4 years and 120 women members later, we keep sipping and enjoying drams together and trying to have women being comfortable in an area traditionally dominated by men. We do have gentlemen’s editions sometimes too, when men are welcome =)
Yesterday we had a WONDERFUL Women Who Whiskey event in Geneva with the incredible @flurin from @dettlingmarmot presenting us mainly some amazing drams of Glenfiddich and @thebalvenie from William Grant & Sons, it was his first time having a women-only public, as it happens to many people when they organize events for us! All women loved learning about these distilleries with its history, craftsmanship & products.
We were lucky to try the following whiskies:
Glenfiddich 18yo Small Batch Reserve
Glenfiddich 21yo Reserva Rum Cask Finish
Glenfiddich 26yo Excellence
The Balvenie 12yo Single Barrel
The Balvenie 17yo Double Wood
The Balvenie 21yo Port Wood
The Balvenie Tun 1509
Ailsa Bay Sweet Smoke
We had a blast! Thank you @Flurin , this was a top notch event, all the ladies only have compliments, and we were MANY! .
If you want to join wWw Geneva or other chapters, please write me and I can send you at the right direction.
Have a wonderful Friday ahead!
