Everyone in the world knows the brand "Jack Daniels". Indeed, as whiskey history goes, JD was one of the few survivors of the great movement away from the brown elixir - the 60's through to the 90's. But that's a story for another time.
Nathan Green, a freed slave, and head distiller before meeting Jack Daniels, perfected the Lincoln County Process, where whiskey is filtered through sugar maple charcoal prior to aging in charred oak barrels. Nearest took the young Jack under his wing, showing how to make whiskey and utilize the unique filtering process.
Today's blend carrying the Nearest moniker, is a tribute to the man and the process. The mash is held under lock and key and although the ancient formula remains a mystery, hand written notes about ingredients have been found so the current dram is as close as can be expected to the original.
Uncle Nearest 1856 is 100 proof and sourced from numerous undisclosed distilleries and aged a minimum of 7 years.
You can indulge Uncle Nearest at Vino Etc. and try the new offering, Uncle Nearest 1884 Small Batch. Quite good.
