In a remarkable triumph, entrepreneur Fawn Weaver’s Uncle Nearest Premium Whiskey brand has achieved a historic milestone, officially surpassing a valuation of $1 billion.

This extraordinary achievement follows Weaver’s recent feat of breaking the Guinness World Record for the most books signed by a single author in 24 hours.

On May 5, Weaver embarked on an ambitious endeavor to sign copies of her latest book, “Love and Whiskey,” in a marathon signing session.

Remarkably, she penned her signature on an astounding 25,005 copies, obliterating the previous record held by Vickrant Mahajan. Weaver’s feat not only shattered the record but also showcased her unwavering determination and resilience.

Weaver’s latest literary offering, “Love & Whiskey,” serves as a tribute to the inspirational figure behind Uncle Nearest Premium Whiskey, Nearest Green.

The book delves into Green’s profound impact on the world of Tennessee whiskey, highlighting his legacy as a formerly enslaved individual who taught Jack Daniel the craft.

As the owner and operator of Nearest Green Distillery in Shelbyville, Tennessee, Weaver’s dedication has propelled Uncle Nearest Premium Whiskey to unprecedented success.

The brand has earned distinction as the fastest-growing American whiskey brand in U.S. history and stands as a testament to Weaver’s entrepreneurial acumen.


“Love & Whiskey” adds to Weaver’s impressive literary repertoire, which includes two New York Times bestselling books, “Happy Wives Club” and “The Argument-Free Marriage.”

Beyond her entrepreneurial endeavors, Weaver is committed to amplifying Black voices and supporting underfunded Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) through initiatives like the Uncle Nearest HBCU Old Fashioned Challenge.

The ongoing campaign, launched on Martin Luther King Day and concluding on Juneteenth, aims to raise $1.4 million for scholarships to benefit students attending HBCUs.

Weaver’s multifaceted contributions to literature, entrepreneurship, and philanthropy exemplify her commitment to excellence and social impact.

As the release date for “Love & Whiskey” approaches on June 18, Weaver awaits official certification from Guinness for her record-breaking signing event.

Once certified, she will receive a well-deserved accolade in recognition of her remarkable achievement!
