The Washington Post Features Belle Meade Bourbon

Belle Meade Bourbon featured in the Washington Post

As the story in the Washington Post states, many distilleries and brands have to construct a legacy and legend to help them sell a product.

But as the Washington Post states, Green Brier Distillery is different. 

In launching their spirits brand, brothers Andy and Charlie Nelson of Nashville haven’t had to cook up a myth. They have a true story. Their great-great-great grandfather Charles Nelson, the German immigrant grocer son of a soap- and candlemaker, owned a distillery in Robertson County, Tenn. At its pre-Prohibition height, it was producing nearly 380,000 gallons of whiskey a year.
