Mixolo Expands to Brooklyn with Host Rachna Hukmani of Whiskey Stories

Rachna Hukmani is the epitome of New York cool. A Brooklyn resident of South Asian descent, and raised on a Greek island, Rachna is a whiskey expert and the owner of Michelin Guide recommended immersive multisensory whiskey tasting experience company, Whiskey Stories LLC.

It’s no wonder Rachna’s experience at Whiskey Stories draws dedicated fans of food, spirits, connection, discovery, storytelling and more. Her multi-sensory experiences include Flavors of Asia (Whiskeys from Asia and Asian-inspired food pairings), Whiskey in the Dark™, a whiskey journey in darkness, Whiskey & Comedy, Whiskey & Music, Whiskey & Whiskey Infused Donuts and so many more. No two Whiskey Stories experiences are alike. You can see them all here:

Rachna has been working with whiskies for 11+ years, marketing top whiskey brands like The Macallan, Highland Park and Johnny Walker, even co-creating brands like The Macallan Double Oak 12, Highland Park Magnus and more. In fact, she has been named the first South Asian woman to open a whiskey company! Featured in Bloomberg News and Forbes, last October she further expanded the world of spirits by launching a first-of-its-kind whiskey-based cologne line. Find out more:

Rachna is also a comedy actor, stand-up comic, and writer with a background in sensory science and food. Over the course of each 90-minute experience, she regales participants with amusing stories, history and context about each tasting, while incorporating music, humor and lots of interaction with her guests.

As Mixolo moves into new markets, we can’t think of a better way to make a splash than going to Whiskey Stories in Brooklyn. On Saturday, August 17, we’ll join Rachna for a luxurious experience of four whiskies paired with four decadent and carefully selected Japanese ice cream (mochi) pairings known for their textures, flavors, sensory temperature differences and more. It is the perfect pairing with whiskey! There will also be other treats, twists and turns to add to the sensory experience.
