A truly rare and superb example of Bourbon treasure.

The Chicken Cock brand goes all the way back to 1856 in Paris, Kentucky. It was a fairly successful Bourbon in its day, but things REALLY took off during Prohibition when the owners moved production to Canada and took the innovative step of packaging their hooch in tin cans to hide it from Johnny Law. In the 1950’s the Chicken Cock Distillery burned down, but liquor wonder-kind and serial entrepreneur Matti Anttila of Grain & Spirits bought the brand and released their line of Whiskey in 2016.

Chicken Cock 10 year old Double Barrel is called “double barrel” because the Gregg Snyder — master distiller at Chicken Cock hand selected twelve barrels and married them two at a time by taste. Not only is that a tasty and painstaking process, but it means that there will only be 330 cases of the stuff — and those 1,960 bottles are not nearly enough if you ask us. The mash bill is 70% corn, 21 % rye, and 9% malted barley. They are even precise about the charring, with a #4 char on the barrel staves, but only a #2 char on the heads. And it’s aged in those barrels a full decade and bottles at 52% ABV… powerfully delicious.

Straight Bourbon must be matured for at least 2 years. If a bottle has no age statement, it’s at least 4 years old.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
"Remember that iconic poster from World War II showing Rosie the Riveter as a patriotic American woman doing her part for the war effort? Well, hundreds of businesses did their part too, and the Bourbon distillers stepped right up with ‘em.

Distilleries all over Kentucky and Tennessee were re-tooled to distill fuel alcohol and ferment penicillin cultures to treat wounded soldiers."
Bourbons are very high in vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
Bourbon was declared "The Official Spirit of America" by an Act of Congress signed by President Lyndon Johnson in 1964.
At any given time, there are more barrels of Bourbon in Kentucky than there are people. The population of the Bluegrass State is about 4.4 million. Today there are more than 5 million barrels of Bourbon sitting in the rick-houses of that Old Kentucky Home. That’s nearly 300 bottles of Bourbon per person, or about 60 gallons each.
