Product description

Every batch of Uncle Nearest 1884 Small Batch Whiskey is hand-selected by our founders and curated by fifth-generation Master Blender, Victoria Eady Butler, who’s signature is on the back of each bottle. Aged a minimum of 7 years, and bottled at 93-proof, this is a smooth sipping whiskey. In 2019, Uncle Nearest 1884 joined the award-winning Uncle Nearest Premium Whiskey line-up including Uncle Nearest 1820 and Uncle Nearest 1856. Together, these three ultra-premium whiskies have garnered more than 125 awards since launching in July 2017, including two “World’s Best” by World Whiskies Awards, “Top 5 Whiskies in the World,” by Cigar & Spirits Magazine, “Chairman’s Trophy, Platinum and Double Gold” by SIP Awards and “Best American Whiskey.”

About the brand

Nearest Green was the first known African-American Master Distiller. Aptly nicknamed the Godfather of Tennessee Whiskey, it was Nearest who perfected the globally recognized Lincoln County process, a unique filtering method that utilizes sugar maple charcoal, turning straight bourbon into Tennessee Whiskey. The Lincoln County Process was named after the county where Nearest lived and made whiskey. Since its launch in July 2017, Uncle Nearest Premium Whiskey has become the fastest-growing independent American whiskey brand in U.S. history, as well as the most awarded American whiskey or bourbon brand of 2019. Recent awards include Double Gold at the SF World Spirits Competition, World's Best Whiskey in 2019 and 2020, Best American Whiskey at the New Orleans Bourbon Festival, and a 95 Points from the Critics Challenge.
