Unbeknownst to many the true Father of Tenesse Whiskey was not Jack Daniel, but rather Nathan Green, better known as Uncle Nearest. A black slave whose story, like many got "lost" in the shuffle of American History. Nearest's ingenuity, inovation and years of experience gave way not only to Jack Daniel's Whiskey, but to the Lincoln County process, which is widely used to this date.

It took over 150 years, but in 2016 the true story of Uncle Nearest finally came to light and with it, and award winning  blend of 8-14 year old whiskey.
