The Black Man who created Jack Daniel's Whiskey: New Book and Movie Coming Soon!

New York times Best-Selling Author Fawn Weaver is writing a new book celebrating the life of Nathan “Nearest” Green, who created the most successful Whiskey in the U.S. but was never given credit or compensation for establishing the product.

You might be familiar with Jack Daniel’s Whiskey brand but it was a black man named Nathan “Nearest” Green who taught Jack Daniel an ancient African technique that filtered liquor through a charcoal mellowing system. This technique is what gives Jack Daniel’s Whiskey its rich flavor and taste. Now you might be familiar with brands such as Diddy’s Ciroc, which grosses $8 million a year, but today the Jack Daniel brand is owned by Brown-Forman Corporation and has a yearly income of $3 Billion. The company is currently trading at $52 a share.

Fawn Weaver author of “Happy Wives Club” became fascinated about Green’s story and decided to write a biography about his life. She has plans to create a movie about this fascinating story which is a missing part of American History. A date hasn’t been given on the completion of this project but we are excited to hear about the new book. Her interview on The Breakfast Club stated she is honored to help write the narrative about such a remarkable hidden figure.
Fawn Weaver is not only a best selling author, she is a popular blogger and runs a savvy investment company specializing in real estate, tech, and branding. Her book “The Happy Wives Club”, includes interviews of women and couples with successful marriages of more than 25 years. She wanted to find the secrets of what makes a happy marriage. After listening to her audio book “Happy Wives Club” I was inspired by such a positive book. Even though I’m not currently married, I wish I could join her club. This book gives great wisdom from woman across the country and shows the importance of happy marriages. In the era of ratchet relationships displayed on TV, her book is refreshing and positive. I loved chapter 4, which interviews woman from Winnipeg, Canada. They explained how important it is to never meditate on negative thoughts. How not to dwell on them or they will grow and become destructive. This is a very powerful book written in 2004. I honestly think marriage should be a part of high school and college curriculum. Just think if girls and men were trained in sustaining healthy & happy marriages. Sounds corny but wouldn’t society benefit from simple teachings? What if?

2. Interesting.

The tour at Jack Daniels in Lynchburg doesn't mention this at all.
