Uncle Nearest Premium Whiskey has become the best-selling African American-owned and founded spirit brand in history, selling nearly 1.5 million bottles.

Uncle Nearest Premium Whiskey debuted in July 2017 with its 1856 Premium Aged Whiskey.

“I couldn’t be more excited that this announcement is coming on the heels of International Women’s Day, given that we are the only major spirit brand with an all-female executive team,” said Victoria Eady Butler, the great-great-granddaughter of Nathan “Nearest” Green. “Reaching this achievement at this moment in time is important as it reminds folks that whiskey is the great equalizer. The support this brand has received has been across every race and gender. As it turns out, people just care that it’s a damn good whiskey, only matched by the remarkable legacy of my ancestor.”

And Eady Butler is following firmly in her ancestor’s footsteps founding the brand alongside CEO, Fawn Weaver, and turning it into a history-making venture.

“Nearest” Green was Jack Daniel’s mentor and Jack Daniel’s Distillery’s first master distiller.

Uncle Nearest Premium Whiskey debuted in July 2017 and is renowned for sourcing the best of Tennessee Whiskeys and Bourbons. The whiskey is made using a non- temperature-controlled aging process and a unique post-aging double filtration method.

“The spirits industry has never seen anything like this in all the years that data has been tracked through the three major data collection agencies for the industry,” said Donn Bichsel, founder of 3 Tier Beverages, a spirits data collection and analysis company. “No African American founded and led spirit brand has ever come close to what the Uncle Nearest brand and team have done. We analyzed every piece of credible data and Uncle Nearest is undoubtedly the top seller of all time, with the rest of the top 10 being so far behind, that they barely registered.”
