Hillary Lake, the Whiskey Sister, is a risk taker, lover of life and people. Her journey into whiskey, specifically bourbon began in November 2010 as she was on her way home from her brother's graduation from bootcamp in Fort Knox, Kentucky. She and her other brother stopped at the Jim Beam distillery on their way home to Chicago and that is where the love affair with bourbon began. Since then she has procured tasting events and taught whiskey education to various groups, been involved in multiple private barrel picks, blended her own bourbon, was inducted as the first female member of the Bourbon Mafia, was written up as Bourbon Babe of the month and currently owns a bar recently named one of the best whiskey bars in Chicago in Forbes.
Hillary is just as passionate about her family as she is about whiskey. She loves being a mother to her two kids, and is happily married to her best friend and business partner. In her spare time, Hillary likes taking road trips, sitting on beaches, planning dinner parties and reading recipes.
