Rogue Bottle Episode 12: Mysterious moonshining grandparents


In this episode

Grandparents are awesome. We kind of take for granted not only how much wisdom and experience they have, but also how mysterious they really are.

In the middle of the WhiskyX event in Santa Monica, I spoke with LC May. He’s the grandson of Clyde May, the founder of Clyde May’s Whiskey, which is the official state spirit of the state of Alabama. LC never got to meet his grandfather in person, but now he travels the globe, sharing the stories of his hard-working moonshining grandfather, and the legacy he left behind.
