The history of Nelson’s Green Brier Distillery is a rich one that dates back to the 1800’s. Originally founded by Charlie Nelson in circa 1850, the brand survived the prohibition of 1909 and was resurrected by chance in 2006 by Charlie Nelson’s great, great, great grandsons Andy and Charlie Nelson who stumbled across the original bottles while chatting to a local historian when on a visit to a small town in Tennessee. Since then, Charlie and Andy have taken Nelson’s Green Brier to the world, and now available in Australia by allocation.
