Craftswomen in Whisky an Intro to George Dickel

The World of Whisky was once described as a “black box, an esoteric and impenetrable secret society that closed its doors tightly against the outside world” (BBSC). Over the course of the last few decades and specifically, the past few years, all of that is changing. Those who are leading the charge of this revolution tell a story more worthy of notice than any other advancements made to the Whisky world to date. The story behind this change might be more inspiring than one might expect and it certainly is greater than the Whisky man. Women are the pioneers and innovators of this movement. Most recently, 33-year-old Nicole Austin was named Master Distiller for George Dickel Tennessee Whiskey’s Cascade Hollow Distillery. We are here to today to share her ongoing and developing story.
