Do I Love You (Indeed I Do) Uncle Nearest Premium American Whiskey

Blurb that goes with it

Uncle Nearest Premium Whiskey, the most awarded American whiskey brand of 2019 and 2020 to-date, presents a new commercial featuring the music of legendary Motown writer and producer, Frank Wilson. The song, “Do I Love You (Indeed I Do)," was written and performed by Wilson, and maintains the record as the most expensive Motown vinyl ever sold.

Today, we proudly introduce this song to the American public for the very first time.

Only 250 demo copies of the 7” vinyl record were ever pressed. As few as two are reported to have survived with the rest being intentionally destroyed when Wilson made the decision to be a Motown producer rather than a singer. It is believed that one of those two vinyls are in the private collection of Motown Records founder Berry Gordy, while the other landed at a famous English Northern soul nightclub in Wigan, England, where the song became a cult classic in the ‘60s and ‘70s. Due to its enormous popularity, the album was officially released in the UK in 1979. It is arguably the most popular Northern Soul record of all time and remained No. 1 on the Northern Soul charts as late as 2015.

Uncle Nearest CEO and founder Fawn Weaver is the daughter of Wilson.

Weaver and the Uncle Nearest brand have become synonymous with uncovering lesser-known stories in American history. In 2017, Weaver introduced the world to Nearest Green through the launch of Uncle Nearest Premium Whiskey. A story once lost to time, Weaver’s extensive research revealed that Green, a formerly enslaved man, was the first known African-American master distiller. Today, his name and legacy lives on through this award-winning whiskey and the 270-acre Nearest Green Distillery located in Shelbyville, Tenn.
