*Nearest Green, affectionately nicknamed Uncle Nearest by his friends and family in Lynchburg, Tennessee, is the world’s first known African American master distiller. Nearest is credited with helping perfect the globally recognized Lincoln County Process, which is the defining distinction between Kentucky Bourbon from Tennessee Whiskey. This unique filtering of whiskey through sugar maple charcoal was named after the county where Nearest lived and made his highly regarded whiskey.

Nearest Green Distillery, a 323-acre Tennessee walking horse farm that has been dubbed by the press as “Malt Disney World,” was purchased in 2017 by Uncle Nearest, Inc. and opened for public tours in 2019. https://unclenearest.com/
