Focus Forward Business Podcast - Episode 38 with Jackie Summers
Play • 30 min

Jackie Summers is an entrepreneur and founder at Jack From Brooklyn, makers of the “Perfectly rendered” Sorel liqueur.

Jackie is the first black person to hold a distilling license in the United States, at least since Prohibition. His determination and persistence got him there, as well as through his 624 attempts at making Sorel delicious AND shelf stable. We are all better off for his diligence.

Listen to Jackie describe and take you through his entrepreneurial journey as he also shares the 500 year journey of sorrel, ultimately leading to the development of Sorel liqueur.

I hope you enjoy Jackie’s story as much as I did.
