Our inaugural whiskey, Uncle Nearest 1856 is an award-winning blend, bottled at 100 proof. It is astonishingly smooth, and can be enjoyed neat, on the rocks, or in your favorite whiskey or bourbon cocktail. This legacy era bottling contains whiskey from our own barrels, and we couldn’t be more proud to share it with you. Uncle Nearest Premium Whiskey is the fastest-growing American whiskey brand in U.S. history. In 2017, Uncle Nearest 1856 Premium Aged Whiskey launched in the United States.
Honoring the first known African American master distiller, Nearest Green, this premium whiskey swiftly rolled out throughout the U.S. and abroad. Together, our six ultra-premium whiskeys have garnered over 600 awards and accolades throughout the world including 68 Best in Class honors. Among them are: Spirit Brand of the Year from Wine Enthusiast, two Chairman’s Trophies from Ultimate Spirits Challenge, Whisky of the Year from USA Spirits Ratings, and back-to-back honors of “World’s Best” at the 2019 and 2020 World Whiskies Awards.
