A Nightcap with Women Who Whiskey

 Women Who WhiskeyWomen who whiskey? Damn straight they do. Just ask Julia Ritz Toffoli, featured in this week’s exclusive Nightcap Interview. Julia is the founder of Women Who Whiskey, a women’s-only whiskey club headquartered in NYC, with chapters across the U.S. and now worldwide. Here we share a dram at Tanner Smith’s while we chat about her network of women with a taste for new experiences and strong drinks.

NightOwl: What was your inspiration to start Women Who Whiskey?

Julia Ritz Toffoli: The inspiration was really other women that I met when I moved back to New York. I started drinking whiskey again, after not having regular access to it when I lived in Europe. I saw other women drinking whiskey, and saw it as a way for us to meet, and make friends in a situation where a lot of people didn’t know anyone. We also used to land on the subject of how men thought it was strange we were drinking whiskey, and how that was ridiculous. From there, we thought it would be fun to try and get to know NYC, which was new to a lot of us, through whiskey bars.
