Screen Shot 2013-11-20 at 1.00.42 PMIn “Whiskey Women,” Louisville-based Minnick dispels the masculine myths that whiskey is a man’s drink. Minnick argues whiskey may not exist without female contributions.

“Women have never received credit for their efforts in the alcohol industry,” said Minnick, an award-winning spirits writer.

“Whiskey Women” explores the forgotten women who invented beer and distillation, owned and operated iconic whiskey brands, managed dangerous bootlegging operations and saved the spirits industry from Prohibition.

Minnick said the modern women running boardrooms, creating new brands and blending and distilling are the future of whiskey. Minnick also offers the first published theory on why whiskey companies only recently started marketing to women.
