About Uncle Nearest

Uncle Nearest Premium Whiskey is inspired by one of the best whiskey makers 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.

Owned entirely by Uncle Nearest, Inc., The Uncle Nearest line includes a Premium Aged blend of 8-10YO, and 11YO Barrel Proof Single Barrel, and debuting at Tales of the Cocktail: a Small Batch whiskey hand-selected by the founders of Uncle Nearest with a blend curated by descendants of Nearest Green. Every expression is distilled, aged, bottled, and hand-labeled in Tennessee.

About Rye

As American as the bald eagle, rye whiskey was first brewed in the American Northeast in the 1600s. Even George Washington distilled it after leaving the Oval Office, so there’s no way of denying its origin.
It’s distinguished from bourbon for its original and unique spicy notes.

By law, rye whiskey must be made from at least 51% rye grain, aged in new and charred oak barrels for at least two years, and bottled at no more than 62,5% ABV.

The nose boasts a bold aroma reminiscent of praline, nutmeg, and a touch of white pepper. The palate is brimming with rich vanilla cream, elevated by caramelized sugar and the spice of rye. The finish is silky-smooth, extremely well-balanced, and lingering.
