The History

Whiskey Charlie's Liquor is a locally owned package store (liquor, beer, wine) owned by Jarrek Hartsell, Marc Hughes, and Ted Backer. The name comes from our grandfather, who owned a liquor store in Texas for 25 years during our most impressionable years. He is known in his neck of the woods as, Whiskey Charley. In 2009 we had the opportunity to enter into the liquor retail business ourselves when we purchased The Cork Liquor stores. We wanted to give them a more recognizable, fun, and close to our hearts name while also honoring our character of a granddad; and so Whiskey Charlie's Liquor was born.

Our desire is to have clean, organized and easily navigated stores that people feel safe bringing their families into.  We focus on having an amazing whiskey selection and support Texas owned breweries, distilleries, and wineries.
