Who We Are
Curtis Jackson is on a mission to redefine the alcohol beverage experience. As a native Atlantan, he grew up in his family’s liquor business, owned and operated by his father for 47 years. At the age of 12, Curtis started working in the family’s separate convenience store, managing inventory and picking up supplies and merchandise. Later, as an adult, he assisted with managing daily operations which included the finances, P&L, and tax filings.
Inspired by his father, today Curtis’ goal is to bring something unique to the community. Beverage enthusiasts are not looking to just buy or taste alcoholic beverages, but an experience.
After serving his country in the U.S. Navy, he launched a career in the telecommunications industry that has spanned over 24 years. As a seasoned management professional and visionary leader, Curtis is destined to keep his family’s entrepreneurial legacy alive. He is a graduate of Arlington Schools, Southern Polytechnic State University, an avid golf player and very active in the community serving as Vice Chairman for the Student Advisory Committee for the Atlanta Area Technical College, a volunteer for Habitat for Humanity, and a member of a national alcohol community.
