This March, for Women’s History Month, Freeland Spirits is honoring the trailblazing women in the whiskey industry by collaborating with the Bourbon Women Foundation. With a portion of all retail bottle sales donated to Bourbon Women Foundation programs, Freeland will help support and empower women through education, leadership training and mentorship.

Freeland Spirits is the perfect distillery to collaborate with the Bourbon Women Foundation, as the spirits makers are no strangers to trailblazing. In 2013, Molly Troupe, now a partner and master distiller at Freeland Spirits, became the youngest female master distiller in America after receiving her Master’s degree in Distillation from Scotland’s Heriot-Watt University.

In a prepared statement, Freeland Spirits founder Jill Kuehler said: “I love the mission of the new Bourbon Women Foundation. As the founder of one of only a few women-owned and operated distilleries in the country, I know about the challenges of succeeding in this industry. I’m happy to get behind more training and mentorship opportunities for women who want to join this wild ride.”

The Bourbon Women Foundation was founded in December 2021 and supports a wide range of individuals interested in pursuing new careers in the beverage and alcohol sectors and related industries.

“We are thrilled to welcome Freeland Spirits as a supporter of the Bourbon Women Foundation,” said Regina Quick, Bourbon Women Foundation chair. “We share a commitment to giving more women the tools, knowledge, and connections that can help them have a thriving career in this business. Women’s History Month is a great time to bring more attention to the need for this type of support.”

To further commemorate Women’s History Month, the distillery has created the Sage Advice cocktail kit, paired with the book “Girly Drinks” by Mallory O’Meara, a feminist history book of booze that dives into the vital role that women have played in the creation, consumption and traditions of alcoholic beverages from early civilization to today. The Sage Advice kit is a loving homage to the advice that inspired Freeland Founder Jill Kuehler to start Freeland Spirits.
