The first vodka-based cocktail to thrive in the United States was the Gypsy Queen, with its heyday in the 1930s at the storied Russian Tea Room in Manhattan,. The drink included benedictine, a liquor made of herbs, roots and sugar. We used benedictine as inspiration when crafting the Clyde. In our take, we add a touch of peach, handcrafted bitters and a slight citrus zest. All you need to travel back to old-time NYC is one cube and your favorite vodka. Made in the U.S.A.

The Story of Clyde Lou saved Clyde’s life during the war and ever since, Clyde went everywhere that Lou did. Clyde had a quiet confidence and always seemed to live in the moment without a care in the world. Having grown up on a peach farm in Georgia, Clyde had a charming southern drawl and would call every woman "his peach". ‘The Clyde’ was one of Herb & Lou’s earliest concoctions and was a tribute to Clyde’s friendship. According to family lore, it captures his quiet sophistication perfectly.
Tasting Notes Having its heyday in the 1930’s at the storied Russian Tea Room in Manhattan, the first Vodka-Based cocktail to make it in the United States was the Gypsy Queen. Originally, this cocktail utilized Benedictine, a liqueur made of herbs, roots and sugar and based on a recipe by Benedictine Monks in the 15th Century. Here, those raw herbs have been coupled with a touch of Peach, in lieu of sugar. Hand-crafted bitters and a slight citrus zest elevate the Vodka, and your experience, to tantalizing, exciting and surprising heights. The Clyde will make you wonder why you ever settled for cranberry juice or club soda.
