About

Family. Lifestyle. Whisky.

For sisters Lauren Mayer and Gabby Shayne, life continues to get more spirited. Born into a whisky family, Lauren and Gabby began their careers at The Scotch Malt Whisky Society of America, Ltd. Like most sisters, they have a number of similarities, yet both have unique qualities that make them strong individuals. They share an enthusiasm for the finer things in life which includes gourmet food, fashion, fine wines and unique spirits.

The smartly dressed, attractive brunettes aren’t the first girls you’d expect to challenge your knowledge of whisky. But that’s exactly what you get when you meet The Whisky Sisters. Their passion for rare and unique spirits has landed them the opportunity to provide goods and services to America’s most influential collectors and enthusiasts.

An unwavering dedication to fulfilling the needs of their clients and resourcing the ultimate spirits for their particular desires are just a few of the reasons why Lauren and Gabby have attained the success they have.
