Yehaaaaaaw.. Alabama has a new State Whiskey
It's good to know that Alabama has solved all its problems.. The legislature must have a very light load now ..so the can enact such vital legislation...

They even overrrode a veto to do this..

What's next.. "Official Insect"?? I would suggest the maggot, but that one's already taken.. Tom Delay is from Texas..

Alabama Lawmakers Designate State Whiskey
UPDATED - Wednesday April 07, 2004 5:39am


MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Alabamans now have something to toast: The state has an official whiskey.

The Alabama Senate voted 19-8 Tuesday to override Gov. Bob Riley's veto of a resolution making Conecuh Ridge Fine Alabama Whiskey the "official state spirit." The Senate vote followed a similar override March 18 by the House. The two rare votes to reject the governor's veto make the designation of Conecuh Ridge official. "It's going to be very good for us. It will give us publicity and bragging rights," said Kenny May, a Troy businessman who founded Conecuh Ridge, the "Alabama style" whiskey made with water from the state's Conecuh Ridge region.

...snip....

Riley spokesman Jeff Emerson said taking time to override the governor made no sense considering the financial problems facing the state and as public distrust of state government endures. "The Legislature should have more important things to do," Emerson said. But state Sen. Pat Lindsey, urged the Senate to override the governor's veto, saying "I thought the resolution was harmless and humorous."

The vote means the whiskey joins other official state symbols, including the yellowhammer state bird, the largemouth bass as official fresh water fish and the pecan as the nut.

...snip...

"I used to help him make it," May said. "Everybody said he made the best whiskey around."
