Visiting Nelson’s Green Brier Distillery (pictured above) was one of the highlights of our recent trip to Nashville, and we want to share this experience with you! At 4pm on June 5, join us at The Whiskey or on Zoom for a guided tasting with Andy Nelson featuring Nelson’s Green Brier Tennessee Whiskey & Belle Meade Bourbon.
Distiller Andy Nelson will lead guests on a 360-degree virtual tour through this renowned distillery in the heart of Nashville. You’ll learn the incredible history of the Nelson family, how Andy and his brother Charlie learned about their heritage and how they brought the family’s whiskey business back to life.

Special pricing on select menu items will also be available: $10.50 for a Slider Trio (The Whiskey, The American and Black & Bleu), $5 French Fry Sampler, $4.25 Fried Pickles.

Zoom guests will receive a link and can pick up their pours (and food!) anytime between 1pm and 3:30pm on June 5.
THEIR STORY In 2006, Andy and Charlie Nelson drove to a small town in Tennessee to see a butcher, what they found, was their destiny. In passing, the two mentioned stories they’d heard about their family’s whiskey business. The butcher, located on Distillery Road, pointed them to the local historian, who proudly showed them two perfectly preserved bottles of Nelson’s Green Brier Tennessee Whiskey. Time stood still and from that moment on, the brothers have dedicated their lives to resurrecting their ancestor’s top-quality whiskey appreciated by aficionados everywhere.
