Scottish women kept spirit of whisky and bourbon alive

London , Sun, 01 Dec 2013 ANI

London, Dec. 1 (ANI): A US writer has asserted in his book, titled 'In Whiskey Women: The Untold Story Of How Women Saved Bourbon, Scotch And Irish Whiskey', that it was the Scottish women who kept the spirit of bourbon and whisky alive despite the drink's macho image.

Fred Minnick, an award-winning wine writer, said that Scottish women were amazing when it came to running businesses and often catapulted their respective brands into national and sometimes international importance, the Scotsman reported.

Minnick explained that influential women like Elizabeth Cumming, who owned the Cardow distillery in the late 19th century, and owner of Laphroaig in the 20th century, Bessie Williamson, increased their brands' stature, demand and distillation capacity.

But they were also incredible philanthropists, who became true pillars of the community, and transformed and modernised the industry, Minnick added. (ANI)
