Harrisburg – The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board (PLCB) will host a special tasting and bottle-signing featuring Lewis Clyde (LC) May, whiskey advocate and educator for Clyde May’s Whiskey, at two Philadelphia-area Fine Wine & Good Spirits Premium Collection locations in early February.
As the U.S. ambassador for Conecuh Spirits, LC May serves as the third-generation spokesman and brand steward for Clyde May’s Alabama Style Whiskey, a brand established by his grandfather Clyde May in 1946. Recognized as the Official State Spirit of Alabama, Clyde May’s whiskey is a highly regarded tradition steeped in a legacy of dedication and hard work.
On Tuesday, Feb. 5, May will be at Fine Wine & Good Spirits Premium Collection, 180 W. Girard Ave., Philadelphia, from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM.
On Thursday, Feb. 7, May will be at Fine Wine & Good Spirits Premium Collection, 1839 E. Ridge Pike, Royersford, from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM.
At both events, complimentary in-store tastings of the following products will be available for customers 21 years of age and older:
• Clyde May’s Bourbon (750mL; Code 1537) – $39.99
• Clyde May’s Whiskey (750mL; Code 31328) – $33.99
May will also sign pre-purchased bottles, answer customers’ questions, and share stories, history, and interesting facts about his family brand’s legacy.
