Peter and Amanda Cook purchased AcmeLiquor Store in 2012, however, liquor retail and distribution runs several generations deep in the Cook family. Peter’s Great grandfather owned a liquor distribution center in New York State. It is rumored that during the prohibition he was responsible for maintaining a constant supply of liquor from Canada for which he had special boats, trucks, and cars that could discretely smuggle the goods across lake Ontario. He was also known to be a key figure in the repeal of the Prohibition (thanks Great Grandpa!). Post prohibition, he owned a retail liquor store in Rochester, NY which he eventually left to his son (Peter’s Grandfather).
Skipping a generation, Peter and Amanda Cook find themselves back in the retail liquor business here in Crested Butte and are proud to keep up the family tradition. Prior to ownership, Peter worked at Acme Liquor Store for 6 years gaining knowledge and experience both with products from around buy the world and of the community around us. Amanda has a strong background in music and was formerly the middle school band director at the Crested Butte Community School and a professor of Percussion at Western State Colorado University. She is known to the youngsters as “Cool-T.”
Between our daily lives and our family, we strive for constant and never-ending improvement and hope that we can do our best to satisfy your needs.
