Highlighting Women & Marginalized Genders in Distilling
There’s data out there that says fewer than 1% of U.S. distilleries are owned by women. As we know, data can be interpreted in many ways. Albeit accurate, what people outside of the distilling industry hear is “there aren’t many women in distilling.” Founder of High-Proof Creative, Karen Locke, knows this isn’t true having spent nearly 10 years writing about distilling. Women in Distilling is meant to highlight those women in the distillery whether they are owning, working, or distilling in the industry. Add your company to the map here.
We hope Women in Distilling will be a resource for those hoping to support the industry. Our map has many categories, please contact us if you would like a category added.
We’ll also be featuring womxn in the industry through our written series. Check back often for stories and Q&As.
Along with women in distilling we strive to include nonbinary and transgendered people, women of color, women with disabilities, and other marginalized genders.
Please contact us if you’d like to discuss terminology surrounding gender in the distilling industry.
