Isn’t it nice to know that some things stay true to their roots? Like Clyde May’s Whiskey. Just one sip, and you can feel the wind rustling through those Alabama pines as Clyde kept one eye on his still and the other looking over his shoulder for the law. What is Alabama Style Whiskey? It’s Clyde’s proprietary finish. Clyde added oven-dried apples to his barrels which smoothed out his amber whiskey. Today during the bottling process, a subtle hint of apple is folded into 4-year minimum aged straight bourbon. It’s what makes it smooth and unusual. Clyde May’s Whiskey – the Original Alabama Whiskey.
From the iconic to the eccentric, Midleton Single Pot Stills, including Powers Whiskey, Redbreast and Green Spot, are amongst the most diverse, prestigious and award-winning whiskeys in the world. From raisins to menthol to cedarwood and pear, their featured Single Pot Still whiskies have a variety of tastes to offer all whiskey fans. Not only do they triple distill their whiskey, they cut more from the top and tail, taking only the heart of the distillate.
Tincup, Colorado (originally called Virginia City), was an old mining town set on the western side of the Rockies, named after the old cups the miners would drink from. TINCUP Whiskey’s name and the cap on the bottle are both nods to this piece of Colorado history. Founded in 1972, TINCUP is a blend of two great American whiskeys, each aged in #3 charred oak barrels for a minimum of four years. “High-rye” bourbon, distilled and aged in Indiana, is blended with a small amount of Colorado single malt whiskey. These whiskeys are then cut with Rocky Mountain water and hand-bottled. TINCUP is a smooth yet bold whiskey, perfect for enjoying outdoors (or even indoors here in Denver).
Founded in 2006, High West began with humble roots, opening a small, 250-gallon, copper-pot still and saloon in an historic livery stable and garage in downtown Park City, Utah. (It became the first legally licensed distillery in Utah since 1870.) In 2015, High West moved to a bigger facility, with a 1600-gallon copper-pot still, in Wanship, Utah. A year later, they were named “Distiller of the Year” by Whiskey Advocate. While they’re known for their American Prairie Bourbon and High West Double Rye!, their Rendezvous Rye is their flagship whiskey. Unlike many other straight rye whiskeys, it boasts a high rye-content. Whether served neat, with a little water, or on the rocks, you’ll enjoy the full, uncompromised taste of authentic rye whiskey. Perhaps that’s why Wine Enthusiast rated it 96 points.
