Nelson’s Green Brier returns to its roots with an exceptional, multi-Gold Medal winning Tennessee Whiskey.

Charles Nelson immigrated from Germany with his family in 1850. His father was washed overboard during the trip and the burden of supporting the family landed squarely on his fifteen-year-old shoulders. He set immediately to work making soap and candles. Then he opened up a store to sell them. Then he expanded the store into a large grocery chain still in operation today. Eventually, he bought-out his Whiskey supplier — the Green Brier Distillery. Fate and fortune caused that distillery to close in 1909, but Charles Nelson’s great-great-grandsons — Andy and Charlie — re-founded the distillery, producing a range of Bourbons, Tennessee Whiskies, and specialty Spirits.

For many people, the Jack Daniels brand is synonymous with Tennessee Whiskey. But before Prohibition shut them down, the original Nelson’s Green Brier Distillery was the largest producer of Tennessee Whiskey by far. And now they have resurrected this historic Spirit using the original recipe.

Of course, that means Nelson’s Green Brier Tennessee Whiskey uses the traditional Lincoln County Process of filtration through sugar-maple charcoal. They also use the sour mash process to maintain consistent fermentation and flavor. What is a bit different from other Tennessee Whiskies is that the mash bill is wheated, yielding a very smooth dram indeed even at 45.5% ABV. First released in 2019, it already has three prestigious Gold Medals to show for the effort.

Corn Whiskey is a commercial product that must contain at least 80% corn, be distilled at less than 80% ABV (160 proof), and, if wood-aged, may be aged in either used or new un-charred barrels.
An un-aged American Whisky is often called “white dog.”Sour Mash is the fermentation process by which a percentage of a previous fermentation is added to a new batch as a "starter" to get the fermentation going and maintain a level of consistency from batch to batch. A sweet mash means that only fresh yeast is added to a new batch to start fermentation.
George Washington was a man of many talents being both a military braniac and the First President of the United States. Interestingly, he also became the largest Whiskey producer in the United States after leaving the politics.

Bourbon rules refer to manufacturing methods rather than location. Bourbon must be matured in new and charred American white oak casks for at least 2 years. If the bottle has no age statement, the Bourbon is at least 4 years old. No coloring or flavoring of any type is allowed, and the mash bill must contain at least 51% corn.
Tennessee Whiskey closely parallels Bourbon, but final filtering through sugar-maple charcoal (called the Lincoln County Process) is what some producers say differentiates them. Tennessee Whiskey’s finish is sweeter and smoother than Bourbon.
