Uncle Nearest 1856 Premium Aged Whiskey

BLACK-OWNED BUSINESS:

An enslaved man named Nathan "Nearest" Green was the master distiller who taught Jack Daniel how to make whiskey. In 2017, Green was honored with his own brand, and it's the fastest-growing independent American whiskey in U.S. history! Folks who love diversity in business and a superb drink will be glad to unwrap this gift.
