Interview with Rachel McNeill, founder of Islay Whisky Academy


Empowering Women Entrepreneurs in sparsely populated communities across northern Europe.

W-Power works with women entrepreneurs in sparsely populated areas across northern Europe and the Arctic rim, encouraging them to set-up, develop and grow their businesses. The project seeks to achieve this through capacity building and providing opportunities for transnational connections and learning.

W-Power Inspiring Women in Business Podcast shares the stories of some of the amazing women who are part of this project and their journeys in business.

Our guest today is Rachel McNeill, founder of the Islay Whisky Academy. Through her business Rachel shares the experience of whisky with her audience, and is about to launch her new Whisky Affinity Online Course . The course will appeal to “everyone who’s interested in life” and as Rachel emphasises “you don’t need to be a Scotch fan to enjoy the course”.
