Gentleman Jack Culture Shakers is a national program for one multicultural filmmaker and six multicultural bartenders to create short films showcasing how they are crafting culture as we know it. As a smooth and approachable Tennessee whiskey that utilizes a second charcoal mellowing process to achieve greatness, Gentleman Jack strives to embrace the creator in us all who takes the extra step to craft what’s real and strives to leave a legacy. This year’s representative for New Jersey is Jonathan Catstillo. Find out more about the program, the other Culture Shakers and the filmmaker here.

Jonathan Castillo | Jersey City, NJ | @Jonnyohthisguy
Jonathan Castillo is a native Floridian and first-generation South American and Caribbean. His parents, hailing from NYC’s Astoria in Queens, built their family in Jersey City. Being one of the most diverse cities in America, he credits a combination of cultural inspirations and tremendous amount of heritage to the Latino he is today. He landed his first restaurant job as a line cook, but the back of the restaurant never felt like home. Once he climbed the ladder to the front of the house, he started shaking tins & creating beautiful expressions – the rest was history. Today, Jonathan owns a successful beverage consulting group and works for some of the most reputable restaurants in the New York and Hudson County area. And the best is still yet to come!
