An exact replica of the iconic pre-Prohibition tin canister. A collector’s wet dream.

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 in 2012 and released their revitalized line of Whiskey in 2017. And things have gone very very well.

Chicken Cock 20 Year Old Cotton Club Rye is a collectible replica of the pre-Prohibition tin canister. It’s an exact replica of the tin that was smuggled from Canada to the speakeasies across America, including the famous Cotton Club. With a mash bill of 90% rye and 10% malted barley, this fabulous liquid was aged for 20 years in an ex-Bourbon barrel. Prepare for complexity, packed with vanilla, spice, and sweet notes on a buttery palate.

Rye - think of it as Bourbon's edgier cousin. It’s known for what many call a spicy or fruity flavor. Rye (distilled from at least 51% Rye) is not on the sweet side and tends to have a spicier body. That’s why the character of a cocktail made from Rye, instead of Bourbon, is drier.
A decade ago there were only 6 brands of Rye Whiskey hailing from Kentucky, nowadays there are more than 50!
Rye sparked the first revolution after the American Independence. It was called the Whiskey Rebellion, and it arose when the government tried to tax Whiskey and enforce the taxation on distillers. The lesson here? Don't mess with a Whiskey drinker's dram.
George Washington famously loved his Rye Whiskey. In fact, after he served as the first president of the United States, he returned to his farm at Mount Vernon and started a small Rye distillery of his own.
