East Bay Women’s Network (EBWN) invites you to our outstanding  monthly networking luncheon meeting: “The Art of Distilling and The Art of the Game” on Wednesday, April 4th, 11:15 to 1:30 at the Grandview Pavilion 300 Island Drive, Alameda.

Join us to talk about building buzz around unfamiliar products, the importance of mentoring, and how two women — Absinthia Vermut / Absinthia Absinthe and Carin Luna-Ostaseski / Sia Scotch — stuck out their necks in a male-dominated world…and are winning.

About the Speakers

Carin Luna-Ostaseski is the first American woman to found a scotch whisky company, Sia Scotch, which got its first funding via the most successful Kickstarter campaign in the category to date.

Fifteen years ago, Absinthia Vermut was bootlegging absinthe. She launched an eponymous absinthe — a liquor that was effectively banned in the United States until relatively recently.

EBWN hosts a delish lunch, networking time and highlights a local non profit. Twenty eight years of business women supporting one another. Join us “in the room!”
