Tasting Sessions

Nearly 10 years ago, friends in Mumbai and I decided to meet monthly to sample a mutual passion – single malts. Together we began a journey exploring the wonderful world of whisky – discovering gems, duds, and many somewhere between.

Along the way, I became the ‘scribe’ of our sampling encounters and shared these observations first on my other blog Everyday Asia and then here on Whisky Lady in India. In 2015, I started the Whisky Ladies of Mumbai with the most fabulous women you can imagine! Then in 2016, a new group was added to the mix – the Bombay Malt + Cigar club. Beyond that, I would join smaller ‘mini’ sessions, the occasional masterclasses, and special events too.

However, in October 2019, everything changed! My beloved base in Bombay shifted to Nuremberg, Germany and a new adventure commenced, sparking a “spin-off” Whisky Ladies in Europe to bring welcome tasting distractions during COVID times.

Welcome to the chronicle of collective tasting sessions… and the evolution of Whisky Lady in India to Whisky Lady in Germany!
