Clyde May's Conecuh Ridge Alabama Style Whiskey
Deep, glimmering bronze color with perfect clarity. The generous aromatics are loaded with rich caramel, dried orchard fruits, toffee, butterscotch, nutmeg, spicy rye notes, maple, and candied orange peel. The palate is harmonious and seamless being dry with pepper edge while offering enough viscosity to give the whiskey length and depth. It finishes with a complex black pepper accent and hints of anise and toasted oak. Sip it straight or make the best Manhattan you've ever had. Distilled in Kentucky and bottled by Conecuh Ridge Distillery (Auburndale, FL). After serving in World War II, Clyde May returned to Alabama to raise a family and farm his land (an unsuccessful endeavor). So, he turned to the illegal trade of whiskey making, or "branch farming," to help supplement his income—a time-honored tradition of farmers in Conecuh Ridge who took their excess produce and turned it into liquid gold. His son, Kenny May, produced the first legal batch in 2002. In 2004, it became the official "State Spirit" of Alabama and in 2009 the brand was purchased by Spirits Acquisition Corp.
