About Uncle Nearest Straight Rye Whiskey

This Straight Rye was what the Uncle Nearest team describes as, "a lofty experiment -- that worked." 

100% rye mashbill, matured in ex-Uncle Nearest casks, and bottled at 100 proof.

This rye stands out among the other Uncle Nearest expressions, some of the most awarded whiskeys in the world.  Elevated, with a rich flavor 

This is rye whiskey, elevated, hitting every mark with its rich flavor profile, incredible balance of spices, and extraordinarily smooth finish.

Tasting Notes

Bold and decadent on the nose, with notes of praline, nutmeg and white pepper. On the palate enjoy light vanilla cream, caramelized sugar and the unmistakable spice of rye. The finish is long, rich, and well-balanced. 

Suggested Serves

  • Sip neat or over ice
  • Exceptional in a Sazerac 
Production Notes

When the truth is more powerful than the legend.

Uncle Nearest is a Tennessee whiskey created to honor an extraordinarily influential distillers, whose name and role in changing the course of spirits history was, until recently, virtually unknown.

Nathan "Nearest" Green was the first Black master distiller on record in the country, and he also happened to be the man who taught a teenage Jack Daniels the whiskey distilling trade.  Only in the last decade has his story been brought back out into the light, and has he been given his rightful place in the whiskey world.

The Uncle Nearest line of whiskeys was created to pay tribute to this all-but forgotten distiller, and to do justice to his legacy by crafting a truly premium Tennessee Whiskey that stands among the best.
