With every blend of Uncle Nearest, fifth generation Nearest Green descendant and our master blender, Victoria Eady Butler, selects a barrel she believes to be the most spectacular of the batch and sets it aside. For the first time ever, these select barrels have been blended together to create our most perfect blend. Known as the “Godfather of Tennessee Whiskey,” Nearest Green was the world’s first known African American master distiller.
The astonishingly smooth nature of his whiskey began with new American oak barrels, a low barrel entry proof following filtration through sugar maple charcoal, before resting in a non- temperature controlled rickhouse for a minimum of six winters. All of his whiskey was distilled, aged, filtered and bottled in Tennessee. We continue that tradition. Every Master Blend Edition of our premium whiskey is bottled at cask strength at Nearest Green Distillery in Shelbyville, Tennessee.
