Charles Nelson – Board Member
Charlie Nelson is the namesake of his triple-great grandfather, Charles Nelson, a German immigrant whose drive and ingenuity built the most productive distillery in Tennessee — until Prohibition shut it down. Now, with his brother Andy, Charlie is bringing back the legendary Tennessee whiskey and Bourbon that were once known and loved the world over. Their Nelson’s Green Brier Distillery in Nashville is where the magic happens, starting in a massive custom copper-pot still, and ending in row upon row of charred oak barrels. While the spirits are aging to perfection, the lively and charismatic Charlie is out sharing the story and the distinctive flavor of his generation’s Green Brier Tennessee Whiskey and Belle Meade Bourbon.
