Tennessee-based Uncle Nearest – which was founded by Fawn Weaver in 2017, and celebrates Nathan ‘Nearest’ Green, a formerly enslaved man who was the first-known African-American master distiller – has released a pair of rye whiskies for 2022.

Uncle Nearest Rye and Uncle Nearest Single Barrel Rye are the two new rye straight Tennessee whiskies.

Additionally, Uncle Nearest has made a slight design change to the labels – replacing the illustration of the site where Green originally distilled with Nearest Green Distillery’s symbol – a whiskey dram encased by a horseshoe.

The seven whiskies of the 2022 Uncle Nearest range are initially being made available at the Nearest Green Distillery [in Shelbyville, Tennessee] but some cases of 1884 Small Batch are being shipped across the USA.
