The Bourbon Daily is proud to celebrate Black History Month with a special week of shows focusing on the contributions of African Americans to the world of bourbon / whiskey. Today, Steve and Renee welcome author and historian Fawn Weaver to talk about Nearest Green (nearestgreen.com). Nearest Green was a slave who helped teach Jack Daniel the art of whiskey making. They would develop a friendship and bond that would last throughout their lives and continues on today between the Green family and the Jack Daniel’s company. Today’s show was sponsored by Steve Akley’s book Mules and More (https://goo.gl/EN3wEj). The Bourbon Daily intro music (Welcome to the Show) and outro music (That’s A Wrap) are both by Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com). Check us out at: abvnetwork.com.
