GARDEN CITY, N.Y. — Conecuh Brands will release Clyde May’s Straight Rye Whiskey on September 1. The newest addition to the Clyde May’s line up is aged a minimum of 3 years and bottled at 47% ABV.
“Right now, Clyde May’s Straight Rye Whiskey is at its peak in terms of flavor profile and taste. Given the excellence of the product and current market trends, this is the perfect time to release this new expression,” said Roy Danis, President and CEO Conecuh Brands.
“Rye is not new to those who knew Clyde,” Danis continued. “In fact, it was the only spirit that the bootlegger made and kept for himself, so this spirit truly honors his craft and dedication. Clyde made his rye in Alabama in open pot stills with fresh Alabama spring water and the finest local ingredients.”
The bottle design is similar to the other Clyde May expressions. This particular bottle has a green and white label, reminiscent of the colors used in his prison cell. An image of Clyde is on the bottle as well as images of the Court House in Alabama where he was tried for bootlegging, found guilty and imprisoned for 8 months.
Clyde May’s Straight Rye Whiskey will be available nationally with an SRP of $44.99.
