The Bourbon Women are having their 2nd Annual Sip-Osium. The three day event runs Friday, August 21 through Sunday August 23, 2015. The organization is for women who are passionate about exploring bourbon and the culture that surrounds it. It’s not just a man’s drink anymore.
“You don’t have to have a certain anatomy to enjoy a good whisky!” says President of Bourbon Women, Susan Reigler.
Following its debut last summer, this year’s Bourbon Women Sip-osium will feature bourbon tastings and tours as it draws bourbon-loving women to the historic Brown Hotel and Pendennis Club in Louisville, Ky.
