Leading up to Derby, this business woman, entrepreneur, and bourbon lover is busy researching bourbon-focused cocktails and recipes. Linda Ruffenach is founder of Whisky Chicks, an organization that brings together people with a passion for whiskey and author of the new book, How to be a Bourbon Badass.
Following? Linda follows several of bourbon-industry-related organizations and people including Mike Veach, A Lil’ Dab of Bourbon (Chrissy Martin) on Instagram, and the different distilleries. “There’s a lot of good juice being made all over the U.S.,” Linda says. “There is craft, artistry, and science that goes into making bourbon. It’s a collaborative industry. These are genuine people with relationships and friendships.”
Listening to? When it comes to podcasts, Linda’s back to bourbon – listening to The Bourbon Daily on the ABV network and The Bourbon Show. “They talk about different things going on in the marketplace,” Linda says.
