The "her" in       Her Whisky Love

I'm still here!  As some of you may have realized I have been working with Bacardi and helping their 5 single malts gain a foothold in the USA over the past year. This has not allowed me to write as much as I would like but I am still visiting new distilleries all the time. Slowly but surely I will get them up here. I will always have and be her whisky love so please stay tuned! Still writing & posting when I can..

Thanks for bearing with me and in the meantime you can still find me on Instagram @herwhiskylove

This Myer Farm Distillery visit was interesting. My father wanted to come with me, but again, he

doesn’t like whiskey. I keep telling him he doesn’t have to try and like it, but I do appreciate his effort. Although, he has started to favor rye’s that we have tried. I am...

These stories are all personal opinion and my way of tracking and sharing my whisky travels with friends and family. I of course want accurate facts.

If this is the case, please feel free to write to me directly on the "Contact Me" page. I would love to hear from you and meet a fellow whisky lover. Thanks for taking part in my whisky education!
