Who we are

The Whisky Chicks® embrace whisky drinkers of all types and ages (21+ that is). We believe a bottle of whisky is sexy, and together we will explore the flavors of unique spirits from around the world.

What we stand for

We are hospitable, strong women that love bourbon adventures. We appreciate making new friends outside of our job, spouses or kids. We also love to get involved in the community, and give back through hosting fundraisers and other non-profit events.

What to expect

We take pride in creating educational experiences that give you something to take home. Whether it’s a new rocks glass, a new friendship or new knowledge of Kentucky Bourbon. Every event will include whisky, tasty bites, fun-loving company and the occasional whisky celebrity. Some events focus on whisky education in a class-like setting, and others spotlight social engagement and happy hours. Whatever the occasion, we are part of the movement to make to whisky the women’s drink of choice. 


The Whisky Chicks concept originated during a discussion amongst friends over cocktails about how challenging it is to meet other women. The one thing this group had in common was an appreciation for bourbon and whisky. The conversation sparked the idea of the Whisky Chicks and in January of 2014, the first group event was held. 

Pulling together each event requires an investment of time and resources. Along with member volunteers, the following folks play a role in the success of the Whisky Chicks: 

Linda Ruffenach, Whisky Chicks Founder & Libation Liberator
Dayna Neumann, Bourbon Bullhorn
Jamie Webb, Bourbon Rookie & Opinion Giver
