Join Master Blender and Great Granddaughter of Nearest Green, Victoria Eady Butler and Market Manager, Rawnica Dillingham, for a Happy Hour you won't want to miss.
Victoria Eady Butler is a relatively new face in the spirits world, but whiskey is in her blood. The great-great-granddaughter of Nearest Green, the first African-American master distiller on record, Butler is the Master Blender of the award-winning Uncle Nearest Premium Whiskey where she oversees the blending process of its 1884 Small Batch Whiskey as well as the selection of all 1820 Single Barrels. Butler also serves as a member of Uncle Nearest’s executive team and oversees the Nearest Green Foundation, a 501(s)(3) non-profit organization that provides scholarships to Nearest Green’s descendants that is funded, in part, by the sales of Uncle Nearest Whiskey
Victoria will share the legacy of Nearest Green and how she became a part of the fastest growing whiskey brand in the history of the US. Rawnica will then guide you through a tasting and introduce you to the Nation's most awarded whiskey and (and bourbon) brand of 2019 and 2020.
As a special bonus, local Mixologist and business owner, Erin Fox of Foxtails, will teach you how to make an amazing Uncle Nearest Whiskey Cocktail from the comfort of your home. Cocktail kits will be available for the first 30 registered guests. Cocktail kits can be picked up from 2-5pm at the Overlook Lodge.
