The Singleton Scotch Whisky Teams Up with Omi Hopper and Andrew Rea of “Binging with Babish” to Empower Female Chefs for Women's History Month

Omi is a "Next Level Chef" contestant who shares her family's unique and traditional Puerto Rican dishes on her TikTok and YouTube platforms. Babish is one-part chef, one-part filmmaker known for recreating recipes featured in film, television and video games on his wildly popular YouTube channel. Together, they recreated Omi's Titis' (aunties') Mofongo con Chicharrón de Pollo recipe and a Black Walnut Bitters Manhattan inspired by Babish's "badass" aunt who loved the cocktail.

Omi and Babish not only joined forces to spotlight these empowering ladies who inspired their passions for cooking, but to dismantle gender norms of women being relegated to the kitchen and encourage more leadership roles for women in the culinary industry. That's why in support of Women's History Month, The Singleton will make a donation to charity partner Hot Bread Kitchen (HBK) – a nonprofit organization creating economic opportunities in the food industry for women, immigrants and people of color by holding specialized job training and food entrepreneurships in New York City.

"My Titis were always recreating or mastering a new way to display or season Mofongo, or even interchanging the ingredients. But it was the approval of my grandmother and her ultimate touch that would be the final word," said Omi Hopper, "Like a true matriarch, her blessing was the only one that mattered in the kitchen. Her strength is an inspiration to me this Women's History Month, a legacy I seek to carry on in my own female-owned culinary business and am pleased to see HBK carry on for the women of NYC." 

"I'm thrilled to be teaming with The Singleton and Omi in our latest 'Basics with Babish' episode," said Andrew Rea. "I was inspired by my aunt to make my own version of the famed Manhattan cocktail by adding Black Walnut Bitters to the recipe, giving it a special twist that complements the smooth taste of The Singleton with a unique flavor she would have enjoyed." 

There's no better way to show your appreciation for your loved ones than a custom cocktail with the smooth taste of The Singleton. The Singleton encourages consumers 21+ to celebrate Women's History Month responsibly. Please visit for additional information on The Singleton.
