In 1885, Charles Nelson’s Green Brier Distillery was outproducing Jack Daniel’s nearly twenty to one before Prohibition shuttered the operation. More than one hundred years later, his great-great-grandsons Charlie and Andy Nelson are reviving the family brand one bottle at a time, beginning with their new small-batch Belle Meade Bourbon. Sporting a refined version of the distillery’s historic label—created by the artist who inked the design for the dollar bill—the bourbon is based on the original Green Brier recipe, complete with high rye content and smooth finish. A Tennessee whiskey is already in barrels, and a brick-and-mortar tasting room and distillery are set to open in 2013.
