Kim Ohanneson (a.k.a. Ms. Go Go) has never met a whiskey she didn’t flirt with or a peated single malt she didn’t love….
Kim is the President of Women Who Whiskey ~ Los Angeles (wWw LA): the first California chapter of Women Who Whiskey, an international whisk(e)y appreciation club for women, Kim launched wWw LA in March 2016 and, with 2400+ members, the chapter is the largest in the world. Kim produces 3 – 5 events a month for L.A. chapter members including occasional Gentlemen’s Edition events.
Most recently, Kim has been asked to create an exclusive whisky distillery tour for wWw members traveling on the Windstar Gaelic Explorers cruise from Edinburgh, Scotland, to Dublin, Ireland, from August 25 – September 2, 2017.
As the co-founder (with Johnnie “the Scot” Mundell), producer and co-host of the bimonthly Whisky & Poetry Salon, Kim has been “trading guests whisky for words” and sharing dynamic performance poets with L.A. whisky and literary enthusiasts since 2012.
Kim is also a Certified Whisky Ambassador (BiiAB) who shares tastings, talks and tales with whiskey aficionados and the whiskey curious for corporations, organizations and private events.
Accordingly, when Airbnb created their new Experiences program, Kim was one of the original hosts invited to share her passion for whiskey and insider knowledge of Los Angeles with visitors through her Whiskey Socials.
