The second event for Birmingham’s ‘Whisky Women’ is a beginners guide to drinking whisky just for the females* of the whisky-drinking species. Its aim is to encourage more women to get into this fine drink and help them feel confident in buying whisky to drink at home or socially.
Long has whisky been the preserve of men, but changes are afoot! There are many more women working in the industry providing a voice for women whisky-drinkers around the world. Brands are now waking up to what the spending power of women could mean for their products. As well as this, in recent years whisky has become ever more popular, but with such choice it is difficult to know where to start. This event will help people understand the global whisky business and more importantly, how to nose, taste and what to look for when choosing a whisky. This will be a fun and informal evening at The Church, JQ, where there will be food to begin and then the opportunity to taste through five whiskies from different areas.
*Please note: men dressed as women trying to attend this event do not count and will be dealt with!
