Uncle Nearest 1884 Small Batch Whiskey Uncle Nearest Premium Whiskey is inspired by the best whiskey-maker the world never knew, the first African-American master distiller on record in the United States, Nathan Nearest Green. A slave until Emancipation and the end of the Civil War, Green was likely the one who taught Jack Daniel how to distill.The new release is age-stated at 7 years and bottled at a light-bodied 93 proof, and is distilled, aged, and bottled in Tennessee. The 1884 name of the Small Batch expression commemorates the last year Nearest barreled his own distillate before retiring from distilling. Each batch of 1884 Small Batch is being curated by a different descendant of Uncle Nearest. The first batch to hit shelves is specially chosen by Greens great-great-grandaughter, Victoria Eady-Butler. If my great-great-grandfather were alive today, I know how proud he would be to see us keeping his legacy alive through the continued growth of this brand, said Eady-Butler in a press release.When Fawn first agreed to shine a light on our ancestor by putting his name on a bottle, we never could have imagined where Uncle Nearest would be two years later, with people around the world knowing the name Nearest Green. I speak for our entire family when I say were thrilled to be a part of his legacy, added Eady-Butler. We set out to cement Nearests legacy and to ensure his contributions to the Tennessee Whiskey industry would never again be forgotten, said Fawn Weaver in a press release. With every bottle containing the signature of the descendant who created it, Nearests family is picking up where he left off.
