Jonathan Turner, a native Atlantan, has been in the food and beverage industry for over a decade. After working in all aspects of the restaurant, he found out his home was behind the bar. A true social butterfly, Turner finds inspiration through interacting with guests and hearing their stories. Starting his career at Seven Lamps, he had the pleasure of working under Arianne Fielder and Tom McGuire, and truly learned the flavor profiles of cocktails. As Bar Manager at Cibo e Beve, Turner enjoys collaborating with the kitchen to incorporate the freshest ingredients into each cocktail. Turner is a self-proclaimed Old Fashioned fan, but also specializes in suppressors and hydration cocktails.
Turner enjoys and uses Crystal Head for two main reasons. First of all, it is a quality made product from some of the finest ingredients. In addition, the product lends so much character to a cocktail, yet leaves him with a blank slate to create signature cocktails that are unique time and time again.
