Uncle Nearest 1856 Whiskey Kit
Pick & Mix with Uncle Nearest 1856
We’re proud to offer three fantastic Sourced fresh cocktail mixes to pair with a fine whiskey honoring the first African American distiller in history.
Uncle Nearest Whiskey
Uncle Nearest 1856 is an award-winning Tennessee Whiskey blend of 8-14 year old barrels, honoring the first African American Master Distiller – Nearest Green.
Known as Uncle Nearest, Green is credited as the Founder of the Lincoln County Process – a charcoal filtering that is the defining distinction of Tennessee whiskey vs. Kentucky Bourbon.
And if inventing one of the most important innovations in whiskey making history wasn’t enough, Uncle Nearest taught a young apprentice by the name of Jasper Daniel the art and science of making great Lynchburg, TN whiskey – we know that apprentice today as Jack Daniels.
We invite you to learn and share the story of this amazing African American innovator at https://unclenearest.com/#history.
MIX INGREDIENTS - CHOOSE ONE FOR YOUR KIT:
Soul Rush Mix: We certainly believe that Whiskey is good for the soul! So we made a refreshing cocktail mixer to go with a fine whiskey! Featuring freshly squeezed lemon juice, homemade elderflower syrup, and Bittermen’s Elemakule Tiki Bitters, the Soul Rush allows the whiskey to ring true with highlights of the island trade winds.
Black Cherry Old Fashioned: This delicious mixer honors the tradition found in the basic chemistry of a classic Old Fashioned – sugar + bitters – and offers a modern riff. Featuring fresh tart cherry juice with Bittermen’s Burlesque Bitters, the Black Cherry Old Fashioned is modern enough to convert a first time Old Fashioned drinker while respectful of the traditional balance to please the classics!
Sweet Recognition: The Uncle Nearest 1856 brings the true story of an African American innovator and our Sweet Recognition cocktail mixer celebrates Nathan Green. Featuring homemade demerara syrup, Chocolate Bitters and vanilla extract, we’ve taken the classic Old Fashioned concept to a sweet celebration of the man who started Tennessee Whiskey.
