A bottle of Uncle Nearest Whiskey
The World's Longest Bar Is Perched Inside Nashville's Humble Baron
In March 2023, a new Guinness World Record was set when the owners of Nearest Green Distillery debuted Humble Baron, a restaurant with the world's longest continuous bar.
Humble Baron showcases its own liquor brand, Uncle Nearest Premium Whiskey, at a 518-foot-long bar that wraps around the inside of the establishment.
The restaurant and distillery take up a whopping 432 acres in Shelbyville, Tennessee. Owners Fawn and Keith Weaver say the bar represents their core ideals.
"My through line for it is everybody has a seat at the table," Weaver said. It's a little reveal of my worldview, which is centered on equity and inclusion."
If the world record wasn't enough, the extensive bar also has 17 different stations that feature beer on tap and craft cocktails, many made with Uncle Nearest Premium Whiskey.
The most popular drink is the Humble Baron Old Fashioned, a take on the classic cocktail made with Nearest Whiskey, plus a dose of herbal, hibiscus-forward Sorel liqueur.
In addition to cocktails and elevated southern cooking, up to 15,000 guests can enjoy live entertainment at indoor and outdoor stages and tour the Nearest Green distillery.
