If Nearest Green had the opportunity to own his own distillery, would he have? We may never know that answer, but with the greatest amount of honor and humility, we open the doors to the Nearest Green Distillery and pray we make him proud.

Phase One of the highly anticipated Nearest Green Distillery will open on Saturday, September 14, 2019 in Shelbyville, Tennessee at 10:00 AM with our first annual Septemberfest. Tasting and hard hat tours should be booked by reserving space below. This hard-hat experience will take visitors through the spaces under construction that will open in 2020, such as the single barrel warehouse and tasting room, as well as Heritage Hall, an impressive collection of all things invented in Tennessee, with a special focus on Tennessee Whiskey, Walking Horses and Country Music.

Opening Events and Happenings at the Nearest Green Distillery


All proceeds from purchases at the distillery during the month of September will go to the Nearest Green Legacy Scholarship Fund.
