About Nelson’s Green Brier Distillery
One hundred and five years after Prohibition forced the closure of one of the nation’s most prolific whiskey producers, two descendants of its pioneering founder threw open the doors to their revived Nelson’s Green Brier Distillery in downtown Nashville, Tennessee. The new site of the notable brand is in the lively Marathon Village, an historic automobile factory now housing many of the city’s creative enterprises.
Just over a decade of determination, Nelson brothers Andy and Charlie, known for their award-winning Belle Meade Bourbon, now greet the public with drinkable spirits and tours of their very own distillery as they launch the second wave of their historic family venture, originated by their great-great-great grandfather Charles Nelson in the late 1800s.
The Nelsons’ fifth generation grandfather Charles, a German immigrant, built the original venture in the late 19th century — to such success, that Nelson’s Green Brier Distillery was out-producing other well-known brands by ten-to-one, before state-wide Prohibition shut it all down in 1909. The whiskey connection had been all but lost to family lore when Charlie and Andy stumbled across it as young adults [barely of legal drinking age!] and knew they had found their calling.
Carrying the family legacy of excellence and innovation forward with youthful vigor, they are especially excited about the additions to their critically acclaimed whiskey: Cask Strength Single Barrel, Cask Strength Reserve, Special Cask Finish Series, Craftsman Cask Collection, Louisa’s Liqueur, and the signature whiskey, Nelson’s First 108. Nelson’s spirits have been honored by Garden & Gun’s “Made in the South Awards,” Southern Living’s “Food Awards,” and received multiple Double Gold Medal accolades from the prestigious San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
