A brand new Tennessee Whiskey made by the family of the man who invented it… and it’s quite the story indeed.

Uncle Nearest is a fairly new brand launched in 2017, but it has one of the best stories attached to it. And this is not a “marketing spin story” like so many boutique brand-come-lately spirits. It’s a story deeply researched and confirmed by historian Fawn Weaver. Nathan “Nearest” Green — called Uncle Nearest — has a truly great American story. Born as a slave, he went on to become the first African-American Whiskey-maker of record. He is also the man who applied charcoal filtration to Tennessee Whiskey for the first time. And he is also the man who taught a young Jacob Daniel how to do it… you probably know him by the name Jack Daniels.

Each release of Uncle Nearest 1884 Premium Small Batch Whiskey is a blend that’s curated and approved by a descendent of Uncle Nearest himself. This year’s release is just coming out and is a seven-year-old batch of pure Tennessee Whiskey bottled at a perfect 46.5% ABV — although we do not know which distillery it came from. But I’ve got to tell you, it’s worth raising a glass to the man that started the whole thing.

Ratings & Reviews
Truly a great Tennessee whisky. I prefer the 1856 more due to its greater complexity.
Smooth and sweet. Can drink over a cube of ice or with a splash of ginger ale! It’s a staple on my home bar and the story behind the brand is a great conversation starter.
A little sweeter than I normally go for but I love the history and story of the company. Makes for a great night cap.
Very nice flavor. A little harsh, but smooths out with the second glass. All in all, a good whiskey with great flavor.
Outstanding whisky!! Extremely smooth with a long finish. Tennessee Whisky at its best!
