Uncle Nearest Premium Whiskey honours the first African-American master distiller on record in the United States, premier Tennessee distiller, Nathan “Nearest” Green. The Uncle Nearest 1856 brand encompasses a Premium Aged and Premium Silver product, distilled, aged, bottled and hand-labeled in Tennessee using locally sourced grains.
Uncle Nearest Premium Aged Whiskey recently won the gold medal at the New York World Wine & Spirits Competition, and was named #1 Tennessee Whiskey by Cigar & Spirits Magazine and was named in their Top 5 Whiskies in the world garnering a score of 95 points. It was also named “2017 Booze of the Year” by Booze Guru. And the premium silver is already selling out.
Fawn Weaver is a TED speaker, as well as a USA Today and New York Times bestselling author. It’s no wonder prolific whiskey writer and historian, Fred Minnick, tweeted when referencing the brand, “Probably the best story behind a whiskey. Ever. [Fawn Weaver] really did some digging."
