Clyde May defines ‘True Grit.’ Born to a single mother shortly before the Great Depression, Clyde was raised in a time and place that required a dose of resilience and character — traits that would become a hallmark of the man and his whiskey. Clyde’s spirit lives on in every bottle — a legacy authentic as the Alabama Style™ Whiskey he invented over 70 years ago. Just one sip, and you’ll see that his integrity and commitment to quality gave us a damn good standard to live up to. Roll Clyde!
Clyde’s attention to detail helped set him apart from other moonshiners, and it meandered through every step. He started with the cleanest still possible and finished with baked apple slices. His high standards led to a whiskey that he felt proud to put his name on.
