    Position summary

    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.
