Uncle Nearest

Uncle Nearest is a brand of premium whiskey that pays homage to the remarkable story of Nathan "Nearest" Green, an African American master distiller who played a pivotal role in the early days of American whiskey production. Born into slavery, Green became known as the first African American master distiller in the United States. He is renowned for his expertise in whiskey-making techniques, which he passed on to Jack Daniel, the founder of the famous Jack Daniel's distillery. Uncle Nearest whiskey is crafted using Green's traditional methods, emphasizing quality and authenticity while honoring his legacy. The brand not only celebrates Green's contributions to the whiskey industry but also seeks to promote diversity and inclusion within the spirits community.
