Edible Nashville: The Woman Behind the Whiskey
How does the saying go? “Behind every great whiskey, there’s a great woman?” Is that it? Anyway, behind our whiskey, there’s a great woman: Louisa Nelson, founder Charles Nelson’s keen wife and owner/operator of Nelson’s Green Brier Distillery. We’ve honored the memory of Louisa with Louisa’s Liqueur, a silky, caramel pecan treat that’s as original as the lady on the bottle.
Edible Nashville recently had a sip and got in touch with Andy and Charlie Nelson, who have taken up the proverbial baton of running Nelson’s Green Brier Distillery. Check out the article attached below to learn more about our tasty tribute to our whiskey’s matriarch.
“Though the amount that Charles accomplished was indeed great, upon his premature death at the age of 56, Louisa was left to run the distillery on her own. Which she did—for 18 years—right up until Prohibition.”
