Thank you, each and every one of you, who took the time this past year to raise a glass to the best whiskey maker the world never knew, the incomparable Nearest Green.

Just a year ago, the name Nathan “Nearest” Green was virtually unknown outside of the small southern town of Lynchburg, Tennessee. Then you, yes YOU, changed that around the globe. Each time you shared this long forgotten story, purchased a bottle of Uncle Nearest to enjoy with friends and family, or shared a post about his remarkable history on social media, you took part in ensuring Nearest Green’s legacy will never again be forgotten. In Lynchburg, the name Uncle Nearest has always had a special meaning, and because of you, the world now knows why.

Thank you for joining us at the start of this remarkable journey. I think after watching the above, and our recently shot behind-the-scenes Nearest Green Distillery video, you’ll agree we’ve only just begun.
