The official state spirit of Alabama, Clyde May’s whiskey, is one big step closer to bringing their production back home. Conecuh Brands, LLC, owners of the Clyde May’s brand, has finalized the rezoning of approximately 76 acres of farmland in Troy, Al. to a tourist destination district.
Luckett & Farley, a Louisville, Ky.-based architecture, interior design, and engineering firm, submitted the site plan to Troy officials and with their approval, is moving forward with schematic design documents.
The Clyde May’s experience will have a variety of activities to delight whiskey aficionados and abstainers alike, with its wandering trails, rolling hills, apple orchard, retail, event space, and future additions of a museum, amphitheater, and guest cabins.
Luckett & Farley is familiar with designing an exceptional distillery experience, with decades of experience serving the nation’s top bourbon brands. The firm is working to create an environment that utilizes the Alabama vernacular in a modern way. The interiors combine wood and leather with crisp lines, large windows, and breezeways. In a nod to the hint of apple in Clyde’s signature Alabama whiskey, the firm has designed custom lighting from apple baskets.
