From January through March, in honor of MLK Jr. Day, Black History Month (BHM), and Women’s History Month (WHM), Uncle Nearest is partnering with our on-premise, off-premise, eCommerce accounts, and our Uncle Nearest #WhiskeyFamily to raise up to $1 Million for Historically Black Colleges and universities (HBCUs).

As reported by FORBESCBSPARENTS MAGAZINENPRBLACK ENTERPRISETCF.org and dozens of other media outlets, HBCUs have been grossly underfunded by at least $12.8 billion over the past 30 years. Uncle Nearest, along with your help, will work to shine a light on this disparity in funding. But as with everything we do, we will not just talk about it, we will put our money where our mouth is, and pledge $1 for every Uncle Nearest Old Fashioned cocktail or cocktail kit sold across the country beginning on MLK Jr. Day on January 16th and continuing through the end of March.


Uncle Nearest 1884 Small Batch Whiskey is a 93-proof whiskey distilled, aged and bottled entirely by Uncle Nearest. Each batch is curated by 5th generation Nearest Green descendant and our Master Blender, Victoria Eady Butler, who has been named Master Blender of the Year four times over.

1884 Small Batch presents with a lively nose of honey, warm brown sugar, cedar, orange peel, tobacco flower, ground ginger and white pepper. On the palate, it warms, showing caramel balanced with spicy wood tannins, with notes of baking chocolate, cigar leaf, nougat and cinnamon. The finish is long and smooth. The cinnamon lingers with dark chocolate, oak tannins and maple syrup. A fantastic sipper, yet versatile enough for all your favorite cocktails.
