Find out the differences between Tennessee whiskey, bourbon, and moonshine at Nelson's Green Brier Distillery. Housed in the historic Marathon Motors building, the distillery was opened by two of the great-great-great-grandsons of Charles Nelson, founder of the original distillery. Using the brand name of this pre-Prohibition historic distillery, they started producing whiskey using their grandfather's old recipes. The tour includes a walk-through of the production floor and tastings. If you like the taste of caramel, coffee, and pecans, try Louisa's Liqueur, which cherishes the memory of Nelson's widow who took over the business after her husband's death.

My husband and I enjoy touring breweries and distilleries and the like. This was the best tour we've done! The history and stories behind this place are so interesting. Highly recommend! more »
If you’re trying to decide which distillery to visit, I recommend Nelson’s. It has a far more interesting than you’ll find at the others, and they make a good bourbon. The Zombie Bite was a good modern twist on the old fashioned. My only regret is not taking the cocktail class. Thanks for a great tour, Daniel!
Awesome tour with Kyle!!! He is both knowledgeable of the family history and the whiskey, and very funny as well. My husband and I were both shocked when at the end of the tour he said he was new on the job! What?!?!? I enjoyed hearing about the history and touring the distillery. We learned a lot. And can't forget the tasting and then being able to buy some to take home to enjoy! I would highly recommend this tour!
