Part-Time Events Lead - Nelson's Green Brier Distillery - R-32552
Tennessee, Nashville , 37201 Nashville USA

Job Description

Company Summary

One hot summer day in 2006, Andy and Charlie Nelson were driving with their dad to a butcher shop in Greenbrier, TN, when they noticed a historic marker for Nelson’s Greenbrier Distillery. The brothers had heard the family lore about a whiskey business (think sunken ships, lost gold, Tennessee’s oldest whiskey and a woman-run distillery before women could vote), but nobody knew the real story. They asked the butcher if he’d ever heard of the distillery. He pointed right across the street and then introduced them to the town’s historian who showed them two original bottles of Nelson’s Green Brier Tennessee Whiskey. At that moment, Charlie and Andy knew: “This is our destiny.”

After years of research, planning, and hearing “no” an awful lot, Charlie and Andy Nelson decided to make the leap on their own and craft a whiskey to bring back the business started by their triple great grandfather. In 2012, the Nelson’s resurrected Belle Meade Bourbon and attracted the attention of Constellation Brands, which took a minority stake in the distillery in 2016 and a majority stake three years later. Nelson’s Green Brier came full circle in the fall of 2019 when they reintroduced their family’s renowned Tennessee Whiskey after a 100-year absence.

The entire Nelson team is thrilled to grow the business once again with the opening of a restaurant and bar to reflect the rich history and quality that NGBD is known for and solidify its spot as a leading hospitality destination in Nashville.
