Bourbon Heritage Month

Attention Bourbon Babes!

You all know I'm a bourbon lover! I'm a Maker's Mark girl, but I'm always game to try a new bourbon or whiskey.  Recently, I learned about a relatively new whiskey that hit the market a few years ago called Uncle Nearest.  Uncle Nearest is a Tennessee Whiskey, think Jack Daniel's ... what's the difference you ask? Well, after the spirit is distilled, Tennessee Whiskey is filtered through sugar-maple charcoal.  Whereas after bourbon is distilled, it's stored in charred oak containers and cannot contain any additives.
And speaking of Jack Daniel's, records show that Uncle Nearest was a slave who came up with the formula for what we all know as Jack Daniel's today.  The story was unearthed by historian Fawn Williams who launched Uncle Nearest and has raised about $20 million to take over the whiskey's production and turn a horse farm into a distillery.

The venture makes Weaver the first female and the first person of color to run a major whiskey or spirit brand.
So the next time you're feeling a little frisky and decide to drink some whiskey, why don't you give Uncle Nearest a try.
