Women in Whiskey: women you need in your life. Well... at least their 'spirit' anyway!!

  • Sarah Elsom, Head Distiller at New Zealand's Cardrona Distillery. Cardrona Distillery has an all-female team, led by founder Desiree Whitaker. The taste really reflects the beauty and depth of this whiskey. A must have. 

  • Emma Walker, Master blender at Johnnie Walker has a true passion for flavours and the science behind them. No wonder the liquid tastes so good.
