Uncle Nearest 1856 Whiskey
The Uncle Nearest distillery is located in Shelbyville, Tenn. The famously small town is where Nathan "Nearest" Green lived and made whiskey in what was then known as Lincoln County. The company now owns the 313-acre farm where the original Jack Daniel Distillery was located, and where Green taught Daniel the art of making Tennessee whiskey. As their own whiskey ages, they are working with two local distilleries making Tennessee whiskey, barreling close to the same 110-proof Nearest was known for, and bottling at just the right age, said to be a blend of 8-14 year old whiskies.
