Portland Whiskey Society Founder, Emily Ross-Johnson, knows a thing or two about whiskey. She previously founded and ran the Astoria Whiskey Society in Queens, NY, a group that went from holding small gatherings in her living room to having over 300 members with events all over New York City. In addition to growing a strong member following with the AWS, Emily has also served as a Whiskey Educator and Ambassador for multiple international whiskey brands. Wanting to bring whiskey education to people of all experience levels, and get people socializing with other whiskey fans, Emily has set her sights on building a laid-back and approachable group in the Portland Metro Area. She is excited to grow the whiskey community here and bring people together around a common passion.
