Bourbon Brotherhood and Uncle Nearest

by

 

Over the years we’ve come to love the Bourbon Brotherhood because of, well…..bourbon – yeah, but there is no better source for learning the history, business, art and yes, the brotherhood of this familiar, but esoteric spirit.

Here’s a great example. The Brotherhood bought a pig and set it free to celebrate……….nah, they smoked it and paired with Uncle Nearest 1856 Whiskey on the back porch at Martin’s Bar-B-Q joint. To round out the non-PC nature of the event, cigars were fired up as well.

I was able to spend some time with brand ambassador Richie Michaels who shared both the history and whiskey of Uncle Nearest. His interview is below along with some pictures of the event.
