We have a new bourbon at Sydney’s Pub! A few weeks ago someone asked, “Do you have Clyde May’s back there?” We didn’t, but after a little research we decided to order a case. When the bottles came we were impressed by the presentation, the story behind the spirit and the flavor of this moderately priced bourbon. There is a short story on the back of the bottle that explains who Clyde May is and the history of this bourbon.

Clyde May was a moonshiner by trade but a craftsman by heart. He made his famous whiskey in hand-built copper stills, with fresh Alabama spring water and the finest local ingredients. The man was locked up for his passion – eight months in the federal penitentiary – yet he started up those copper stills the day he got out.

This straight bourbon honors Clyde’s dedication to the craft. We use simple ingredients and a patient aging process to produce a fine, easy-drinking spirit. Like Clyde’s own moonshine, it’s a whiskey with integrity. Straightforward, porch-sitting, rocking chair bourbon – and this time, it’s perfectly legal.

Clyde May’s received 93 points at the Ultimate Spirits Challenge and for good reason. This bourbon is incredible. For 46%, the bourbon is smooth and has a great flavor and lasting finish. There are several popular ways to enjoy Clyde May’s:

  • Up/neat
  • On the rocks
  • Manhattan

Order one of these or however you like. Please enjoy Clyde May’s responsibly. Cheers!
