From Clyde May’s special stock, an incredibly smooth high-proof Whiskey was born.

Clyde May was a WWII hero and a bit of a local legend. But when he got home after the war, he made his living as a moonshiner in the back-woods of Alabama. He produced high-quality Spirits and actually aged his Moonshine into Whiskey when other illegal operators were selling it right out of the still. He got caught and served eight months in federal prison, but as soon as he got out he built a new still and started over again. In 2001, Clyde’s son recreated the magic of that first aged Moonshine and built Clyde May’s Whiskey — legally this time — and their signature Bourbon is now the Official State Spirit of Alabama.

Released in 2021, Clyde May's 6 Year Old Straight Bourbon Whiskey was born from their special stock of 6-7YO Whiskeys that were aged in 53-gallon #4 char American oak barrels. Bottled at an impressive 55% ABV, the natural essence of apple was added for finishing. It’s non-chill filtered and this incredibly smooth and balanced high-proof Spirit is already winning awards with the prestigious Double Gold at the 2021 SFWSC and a score of 93 points at the Ultimate Spirits Competition.

Bourbon Is a ''new barrel Spirit'': One of the legal requirements for Bourbon is that it only be aged in brand new oak charred barrels.
Straight Bourbon must be matured for at least 2 years. If a bottle has no age statement, it’s at least 4 years old.
"Remember that iconic poster from World War II showing Rosie the Riveter as a patriotic American woman doing her part for the war effort? Well, hundreds of businesses did their part too, and the Bourbon distillers stepped right up with ‘em.

Distilleries all over Kentucky and Tennessee were re-tooled to distill fuel alcohol and ferment penicillin cultures to treat wounded soldiers."
Sure, Kentucky gets all the press when it comes to Bourbon. And with good reason—nearly 95% of it is produced there. But Bourbon can be made anywhere as long as it's within the United States. Just ask states with budding distilleries like Illinois and New York.
Bourbons are very high in vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
