Nearest Green Distillery

To our distillery guests and whiskey family,

Due to the ongoing concern regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19) we have chosen to temporarily close the Nearest Green Distillery for tours as a precautionary measure. We did not make this decision lightly and apologize for any disappointment or inconvenience this may cause. Like all of you, our number one priority is the health and safety of our guests, staff and community.

We look forward to reopening for tours in the near future and continuing to share the legacy of Nearest Green and our exceptional whiskey with all of you.

With Honor,

The Nearest Green Distillery Team

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 Nearest Green Distillery opened this September in Shelbyville, Tennessee. Our Uncle Nearest Premium Whiskey Tasting and hard hat tour experience, as well as our weekly Founders Tour experience, can be booked by clicking on the links below. The hard-hat portion of our tours 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.
