  • A great tour!! The $11 was amazingly great value for a really interesting tour and tasting. The history of the family is fascinating, and just amazing how the reincarnation happened!! The 4 drinks you get to taste at the end are wonderful, and you learn a lot about the production of whiskey, Tennessee whiskey and bourbon.
  • The tour + tasting was worth the money. They walk you through the WILD family history as they walk you through the Distillery. The tastings range from strong to sweet. Would recommend to anyone who loves history & good whiskey.
  • The tour was short and mostly consists of history about the name and family. However, the history has only the most technical connections to the current operation. The distillery is so new that they only have a tiny on-site production. Everything they sell is bought from a party. The tasting is a little rushed, and consists of a mediocre whiskey, a good whiskey and two poor ones. I wouldn't recommend going out of your way to visit Nelson's Green Briar distillery just yet, however, it may be better in a decade when they are more established.
  • Pulled in about 3 minutes after posted closing time and walked in and started looking around without anyone working there even batting an eye or informing us that they were closing at all. I grabbed the least expensive bottle they had in the bar area, which was the vodka, and my wife picked out an awesome looking hoodie, along with a nice T-shirt for me and we were very pleased with the short but sweet visit. We will return for the tour next time.
  • Tour guides tell an amazing story. The tasting afterwards is fun way to learn how whiskey changes and develops. Would recommend to anybody visiting wanting a great local story and an interactive experience. Tours run every half hour.
