Our inaugural whiskey, Uncle Nearest 1856 is an award-winning blend, bottled at 100 proof. It is astonishingly smooth, and can be enjoyed neat, on the rocks, or in your favorite whiskey or bourbon cocktail. This legacy era bottling contains whiskey from our own barrels, and we couldn’t be more proud to share it with you. Uncle Nearest Premium Whiskey is the fastest-growing American whiskey brand in U.S. history. In 2017, Uncle Nearest 1856 Premium Aged Whiskey launched in the United States.
