Last year we were honored to work with Jackie Zykan on our WHMS pick but, due to scheduling issues, we didn't have any women on the pick team. We vowed to level up this year with two clear objectives: Have a majority-female pick squad, and partner with a distillery that has a woman in an active leadership role. Dare we say, mission accomplished!
Prairie Rose (Liquor.com), Caroline Paulus (Justins' House of Bourbon), and Katie Garrett (Old Hickory Whiskey Bar) joined us for this year's bourbon pick, which was led by Frey Ranch co-founder Ashley Frey. Like last year, we had to do it virtually, so we recorded the selection process for your education and enjoyment.
