She’s Raising the Bar!

Libation liberators. Whisky educators. Friendship facilitators.

That is the Whisky Chicks mantra. It was five years ago when we started our journey to bourbon enlightenment and it is amazing to see how far we have come. The purpose was to make learning about whisky, especially Kentucky bourbon whisky, approachable and fun. It has evolved to be an avenue for empowerment and inclusion through common interests and shared experiences. We believe that anyone that is 21 years or older can become a Bourbon Badass.

In celebration of the 5-year anniversary and International Women’s Day, the Whisky Chicks are partnering with Gentleman’s Jack and Brown Forman to host our very first cocktail competition. Five bartenders, from all different backgrounds, are invited to share their stories and their passion for amber spirits. Each will put together a signature cocktail that embraces what it means to be a Whisky Chick and a Bourbon Badass.

A select group of judges will come together to sample and compare the different concoctions with a winner being named at the end of the evening. The winning bartender will be recognized as an official Bourbon Badass and take home a Bourbon Badass barrel head, receive a complimentary one-year Bourbon Badass membership to the Whisky Chicks, bragging rights including the right to promote the winning cocktail as the official 2019 Whisky Chicks Cocktail. Oh yeah, there is also a $200 cash prize for the winner.

The celebration will take place on Wednesday, March 6, 2019 at the amazing Aloft Hotel on Main Street in Downtown Louisville. The festivities officially begin at 6:30PM and will go until 8:30PM. Tickets for the event are $20 for members and $25 for non-members. Admission will include light appetizers, sample cocktails featuring Gentleman’s Jack prepared by the participating bartenders and of course a few surprises along the way.  Whisky Dudes are welcome.
