Women & Whiskies
In increasing numbers, women are finding and sharing their favorite single malts, blends, bourbons and rye, but all too often, they are ignored by whisk(e)y companies. Skyy Spirits has recognized the trend and responded by launching "Skyy Spirits Women & Whiskies," an interactive community managed by women for women who love the alluring spirit.

The program launched this month with a sold-out event in New York’s trendy Chelsea neighborhood. Professional, sophisticated women gathered to sample different whiskies from Scotland, the U.S. and Japan, find out the differences among the regions and sip delicious whisk(e)y cocktails, including the Glen Grant Zinger, The Glenrothes Rob Roy, and Hibiki Falling Leaves.

The group will host future events in other U.S. cities. The Women & Whiskies community builds on Facebook, where a lively group of fabulous women (and some supportive men) discuss the virtues of the mighty brown spirit.
