Ongoing Project: Women in Distilling

This began as an independent passion project, but I’m hoping that through this blog, I can get additional recommendations and continually add to the list over time.

Eventually, I will create a companion post that focuses on women in wine. I’ve mentioned a few during the wine challenge, but I’m always on the hunt for more names and products to try.

If supporting female-owned and female-produced products is as important to you as it is to me (for winemaking and distilling are highly male-dominated fields to this day), please feel free to refer to my list and submit your own products to be added!
