Nelson's Green Brier Distillery - Belle Meade 10 Year Old Bourbon Finished in Mourvèdre Casks

Brothers Andy and Charlie Nelson, Co-Founders of Nelson’s Green Brier Distillery in Nashville, Tennessee have released their latest cask finished bourbon. The brothers launched their first finished Bourbons two years ago by introducing the Belle Meade Bourbon Special Cask Finish Series – Sherry, Madeira, and Cognac. Those bottles are since long gone.

This latest endeavor is be dubbed the Craftsman Cask Collection, as the Nelson brothers have tasked themselves with perfecting the craftsmanship of cask finishes for their select aged Belle Meade Bourbon. This line of cask-finished Bourbon will expand by adding four new limited-release finishes. Each of the new releases will use Bourbon that has been aged a minimum of 10 years before being finished in unique casks, each with its own story to tell.

Withers Winery – Owner Andrew Tow.

Mourvèdre is one of the primary grapes grown by Withers Winery in the Sierra Foothills. Owner Andrew Tow has been a fan of Belle Meade Bourbon since day one, and when he sent Andy and Charlie a Mourvèdre cask, the brothers knew something special was about to happen. This 10-year-old Bourbon was rested 148 days in a single Mourvèdre cask for a smooth, round, and bursting-with-flavor cask finish.

The Launch of the Craftsman Cask Collection

Bottled at cask strength of 117° proof, Nelson’s Green Brier Distillery began releasing the new Craftsman Cask Collection Belle Meade Bourbon Mourvèdre Cask Finish on March 10, 2018 at the distillery. It took a mere three days to sell out of all 288 bottles at $150 per bottle.

These four expressions will be released and revealed one at a time over the course of a year, each with its own release date. The Craftsman Cask Collection series will be sold only at the distillery while supplies last.  Watch here for future release of this limited edition cask finished bourbon.
