From the distiller:
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.
85 Proof. "The Original" is aged 6 to 7 years in oak barrels and finished with a hint of apple. Great over ice but a solid choice for mixing a cocktail.
