Serial Entrepreneur Julie Macklowe is Giving Whiskey The Feminine Touch It Always Needed – Until Now

Serial entrepreneur Julie Macklowe is here to tell you that drinking whiskey is for the girls, too.

The Aspen, CO native is breaking down stereotypes when it comes to whiskey thanks to her own brand The Macklowe, which has been described as the best high-end — and the only — luxury American single malt whiskey on the market.

Always ordering whiskey as her go-to when out at corporate events, Macklowe discovered that there was no single malt that was 100% made in the United States. Combining both her knowledge of whiskey and finance, the now California resident created The Macklowe in 2018, which is currently in roughly ten main markets and growing.

“I’d say it’s been a whirlwind,” Julie tells Celeb Secrets in a virtual interview. “We’re really proud of this as it’s the first Kentucky-made luxury product. We won San Francisco’s Double Gold on Spirits Award and MSLA Gold, too, which is super exciting.”

Describing the taste as a hybrid between bourbon and scotch, The Macklowe is quite literally in its own category thanks to its all-around uniqueness. Dedicated to crafting the finest American single malt whiskey, The Macklowe delivers an unparalleled luxury experience to whiskey connoisseurs and enthusiasts around the world. Their mission is to honor the traditions of whiskey-making, while pushing the boundaries of innovation and excellence, keeping their commitment to using the highest quality ingredients, employing the most skilled artisans, and leveraging the latest technology to create a truly unique and exceptional product.

“Everything I do is [Macklowe] every day and every night,” she laughs. “This is so authentic to me. I’ve been known as the girl drinking the whiskey 20 years ago in a ball gown at the New Yorkers for Children Gala or at the Met Gala — it’s something I’ve always done. I’ve always had a flask on me, hence the shape of the bottle looking like a flask; I think it’s just much more authentic to me as a person.”
