Through her innovative and highly customized programs and tastings, Jackie helps both new and experienced whiskey drinkers to level up and conquer their personal and professional goals through whiskey knowledge, confidence, and tools.
As an Executive and Certified Bourbon Steward, Global Ambassador for Bourbon Plus, Bourbon & Beyond Festival Host, and a Whiskey Coach, Consultant, and Content Creator, Jackie's goal is to share and translate everything she's learned, and continues to learn, in the most relatable, engaging, and entertaining way possible while welcoming newcomers, offering a new perspective for veterans, and making whiskey more fun, friendly, and approachable than ever before.
Jackie spent her pre-whiskey, corporate years working in the automotive, commercial real estate, elite business travel, and sports media industries. She’s a member of SAG-AFTRA, an Amazon best-selling co-author, and loves hanging with her dog (Charlie), sunshine, iced coffee, people, and of course... whiskey!
"I love whiskey but I never get to drink it because my wife refuses to buy it. She only buys wine and vodka. Her girlfriends discovered you last month and all of a sudden whiskey is cool and that’s all she wants to drink!
God bless you Jackie James!"
- Darin H., New York City
“I always thought whiskey was for men and I was always afraid to try it. You made it so painless and fun to learn! Now I can even school my husband on as you call it our favorite brown juice. Haha!”
- Janelle R., San Francisco
“You made it fun and I love how hands on you are. I’ve never appreciated my sense of smell more and can’t wait to try your Jameson in the mashed potatoes tip on Thanksgiving!”
- Susan W., San Diego
"My wife never lets me teach her anything and you made her curious about whiskey. Now we have whiskey date nights after the kids go to bed and she lets me give her taste tests and we talk about what she likes and doesn't."
- Scott W., Los Angeles
