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.

The a hint of its youth in the nose but the palate and finish is full of nuttiness, sweetness and really pleasant leather and oak notes. Great for the price too (~$25)
