Clyde May's Alabama Style Whiskey
Over 70 years ago, in an illegal still tucked away in the Conecuh Ridge in Alabama, Clyde May created his first batch of craft whiskey. Clyde eventually paid the price for his passion—eight months in federal penitentiary. But that didn't stop him from setting up a new still the day he was released. Clyde May lived outside the law and the bourbon belt. He was a moonshiner by trade but a craftsman by heart. Using copper stills, fresh Alabama spring water and the finest local grains, he vowed to make the best darn whiskey Alabama had ever tasted. While others sold their moonshine straight, he aged small batches in charred oak barrels and experimented until he created his own unique finish—Alabama Style™. It’s our unique blend. Clyde added oven-dried apples to his barrels. The resulting hints of green apple and cinnamon not only made it smoother than other whiskeys— This unique blend is what makes Clyde May’s® Alabama Style™ Whiskey so special.
|Review||Deep, glimmering bronze. Distinct aromatics of rich caramel, dried orchard fruits and green apple. Warm, medium-bodied spirit with accent of black pepper and hints of anise and toasted oak. Crowned by a smooth finish.|
