Uncle Nearest 1884 is the proud legacy of the best whiskey maker the world never knew, Tennessee distilling legend, Nearest Green. Each small batch has its barrels hand selected by our founders with each blend curated by descendants of Nearest Green. The signature of the descendant who curated each batch is embossed on the back.
“Uncle Nearest Premium Whiskey is made using local ingredients from Tennessee. Our Tennessee Silver is an intricate 11-step, 25-day process utilizing a one-of-a-kind triple charcoal mellowing system that was hand-drawn and fabricated by engineers, exclusively for Uncle Nearest. No other whiskey in the world utilizes this proprietary process.
It is our Silver whiskey that will become our Aged after a minimum of seven years. As we still have time before our silver turns to gold, we are working with two local distilleries still making Tennessee whiskey the way Nearest made it intricately by hand, placing it in the barrel close to the same 110-proof Nearest was known for, and pouring it out at just the right age, taste and color for a surprisingly smooth finish.”
