On February 22nd, elevate your spirits with IMPACT Magazine at the Black History event for the launch of Uncle Nearest Whiskey & Bourbon at the Edison House in Salt Lake City!
In the 1850s, Nearest Green, an enslaved man, imparted his distilling knowledge to a young Jack Daniel, laying the foundation for Tennessee whiskey. After the Civil War, Daniel, recognizing Green’s expertise, appointed him as the first head distiller. Yet, Nathan Green’s story remained in the shadows until 2017 when Uncle Nearest Premium Whiskey, crafted by CEO Fawn Weaver, brought his legacy to light.
Revel in this rich history with specially curated Uncle Nearest cocktails, with art by Yasmine Jordan – an evening to savor history, heritage, and exceptional spirits.
