Kim Ohanneson, President, Women Who Whiskey - Los Angeles

Kim Ohanneson has never met a whiskey she didn't flirt with or a peated single malt she didn't love....


As a Certified Whisky Ambassador, Kim shares her love of the "water of life" with whisky aficionados and the whisky curious through tales, talks and tastings for corporations, organizations, and private events.  BuzzFeed L.A. praised Kim’s “encyclopedic knowledge of whiskey” and her “exciting, energetic” tastings, which combine “lots of laughter along with the fun of learning.”


Kim is also the President of Women Who Whiskey ~ Los Angeles which she launched in March 2016. The first California chapter of Women Who Whiskey (an international whiskey appreciation club), Women Who Whiskey LA is also the largest chapter in the world, with 2400+ members (25% of Women Who Whiskey's global membership.)  wWw LA also hosts occasional, "mixed company" Gentlemen's Edition events.


Kim co-founded the bimonthly Whiskey & Poetry Salon (with now Co-founder Emeritus Karolyn Kiisel) in November 2012.  Kim produces and hosts, either solo, with co-founder Johnnie "the Scot" Mundell (Japanese Whisky Specialistt; Beam Suntory) or with visiting guest whiskey brand ambassadors.


In November 2016, Airbnb engaged Kim (one of only 200 experts worldwide) to help launch their "Experiences" program by sharing her knowledge of whiskey, Los Angeles and California with Los Angeles visitors through curated events that highlight iconic L.A. whisky bars, Golden State distilleries and local micro-producers.
