Create an itinerary including Nelson's Green Brier Distillery
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. Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Nashville trip simple and quick.

  • The tasting experience greatly exceeded our expectations. The guide (is this what he's called??) was very animated and knowledgeable, and he made the experience so fun! The bourbons were delicious, and the facility was lovely. There was a private tasting room for the group, which made it feel more intimate. We really enjoyed it and would highly recommend to anyone visiting Nashville!
  • Absolutely one of the best distillery tours we have done. What an amazing story and history into a great whiskey! The bar and tastings are well worth the visit alone but if you have time, the tour is a must!
