Thursday, Sept. 14, 2017, Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey announced that the makers of Clyde May’s Alabama-style whiskey plan to consolidate operations in Troy, Alabama, where the company will build an artisan distillery, rack houses and a bottling hub, as well as a tasting experience center designed to attract tourists.
Conecuh Ridge Distillery LLC’s project calls for an initial investment of $13.6 million in Troy and will employ 50 people in the fifth year of operation. The average annual wage for those jobs is around $54,000.
