Fawn Weaver, CEO, Co-Founder and Chief Historian of Uncle Nearest Premium Whiskey

On this podcast, you’ll learn about the unique origin story of Fawn Weaver, the CEO, Co-Founder and Chief Historian of Uncle Nearest Premium Whiskey, the first spirit brand in history commemorating an African-American. 

Nathan “Uncle Nearest” Green is now recognized as the master distiller who taught a young Jack Daniel how to make Tennessee Whiskey.  

Fawn Weaver, along with a group of historians, unearthed the story of Uncle Nearest and now heads the most awarded American premium whiskey brand in United States history.  Uncle Nearest is sold in all 50 states, 10 countries outside of the U.S. and 12,000 locations worldwide. 

This is an incredible story that is powered by a woman who saw an opportunity to create a business and a bridge between the past and the future. 

Thanks for listening and enjoy the conversation.
