Who was "Old NIck Williams"?
Nicholas Lanier Williams, the founder of the Williams Distillery in 1768, was the son of Colonel Joseph Williams, an officer in George Washington's Revolutionary Army. He established the Distillery on the 8,000 acre Panther Creek Plantation and family homeplace along the Yadkin River.
119 years later, Nicholas Glenn Williams (March 28, 1865 - November 25, 1913), the great grandson of Colonel Williams, took charge of The Old Nick Williams Company, expanding the operations and selling old and new products nationally and internationally. Originally, the whiskey was made from corn, with the spent mash feeding his cattle herd, but he later added Rye, Wheat, Bourbon and Sour Mash varieties as well as producing Brandies from fruit grown on the farm.
