*Whiskey Barrel Aged Coffee
You’ve got to try it — some of our best organic coffee aged in a premium whiskey barrel right up until it’s roasted. The taste is so distinct that after you drink a cup you’ll wonder why you don’t have a whiskey buzz.
The barrels are from Uncle Nearest 1856, a premium whiskey made in honor of Nathan “Nearest” Green, an African American distiller who lived during the mid-to-late 1800s. Green, it turns out, taught the legendary Jack Daniels everything he knew about making whiskey.
A portion of Uncle Nearest 1856 sales supports the Nearest Green Foundation, an organization working to ensure Green’s story is never again lost to history. The Nearest Green Foundation projects include a street renaming, museum, memorial park, book and scholarship fund.
