Uncle Nearest Premium Whiskey is made using local ingredients from Tennessee. Our Premium Silver is an intricate 11-step, 25-day process utilizing a one-of-a-kind triple charcoal mellowing system that was hand-drawn and fabricated by engineers, exclusively for Uncle Nearest. No other whiskey in the world utilizes this proprietary process. It is our Silver whiskey that will become our Aged after a minimum of seven years. As we still have time before our silver turns to gold, we are working with two local distilleries still making Tennessee whiskey the way Nearest made it intricately by hand, placing it in the barrel close to the same 110-proof Nearest was known for, and pouring it out at just the right age, taste and color for a surprisingly smooth finish.
