Belle Meade made a beauty in their premium, reserve expression of their multi-award-winning Bourbon. The best barrels get to have their own private party, melding into a richer, more robust, 108.3-proof Bourbon that is singularly satisfying. For those who appreciate the finer points of the distiller’s art, this bottle is sure to shine.
Stop us if you've heard this before… A once-proud, now-shuttered family business seeks resurrection - and finds it. In 2006, and at the suggestion of their father Bill, Andy and Charlie Nelson went to visit their ancestral home in Greenbrier, TN, with only a vague knowledge of their great-great-great-Grandfather's once-thriving whiskey business. A small historic registry sign marks the location on Distillery Road where Charles Nelson started and operated the largest Tennessee distillery prior to Prohibition. A local butcher showed the the brothers the spring that fed the distillery its water. A local historian showed them two original bottles of Green Brier whiskey. Soon Andy and Charlie could see their destiny unfurling before them. With little more than a dream of producing a spirit to make their ancestors proud, the brothers set out on a mission to re-establish the family business. Known for its bold character and smooth finish, the whiskey itself was the stuff of legend: In 1885, it outsold Jack Daniel's nationwide by a factor of 16. The brothers did extensive recipe research and believe they have come up with a close approximation to the original - and today it is likely one of the only wheated whiskeys made in Tennessee. In 2014 they opened a beautiful distillery in Nashville to recreate the spirit of their forefathers. As their new stocks of whiskey age, they have hand-selected and sourced barrels to create blends that would make all of their ancestors proud.
