High Ridge Spirits

Alabama’s first legal distillery since Prohibition has opened in a county famous for producing illegal whiskey.  

High Ridge Spirits operates in a former horse barn in rural Bullock County. Its shiny metal tanks and spotless concrete floor look like any food processing facility. Employees’ relaxed pace indicate there are no worries about a raid by state liquor agents. Head distiller Jamie Ray says it’s a little different from the way it’s been done in the woods of Bullock County for decades.

Clyde Mays Whiskey Alabama Style

Conecuh Ridge Whiskey

Conecuh Ridge is described as an “Alabama Style Tippling Whiskey”, a rather imprecise designation which basically means that it is patterned after the spirits that would have been available at informal “tippling houses”. Clyde May used spring water from Southern Alabama and added oven-dried apples to his barrels. The resulting hints of green apple and cinnamon not only made it smoother than other whiskeys—they’re what made it Alabama Style. It is then aged for five to six years in heavy-toast charred white oak barrels. Conecuh Ridge Whiskey is a type of whiskey produced and officially marketed as “Clyde May’s Alabama Style Whiskey” by Conecuh Ridge Distillery Inc. It is marketed as a high-quality aged moonshine whiskey which was produced illegally in Alabama during the mid to late 20th century.
