Family-Owned Distillery Revives Whiskey Business 105 Years Later

Bone McAllester Norton client Green Brier Distillery is producing whiskey once again for the first time since 1909. The great-great-great grandsons of original distillery owner Charles Nelson have reopened the family business in the Marathon Village Facility, and Monday marked the first time in 105 years that the original recipe had been used to make whiskey. Nelson’s distillery was located in Greenbrier, where he produced the only Tennessee whiskey not using wheat. His was one of the largest facilities in the nation in the late 19th century. The family plans to open the distillery to the public in October.

Bonelaw’s Alcoholic Beverage Law practice has provided the licensing advice to the Nelson family for the distillery.
