Tropical sun and sand come to the Bluegrass State.

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. So well, that in 2018 they entered into a collaborative distilling agreement with Bardstown Bourbon Co. — a powerhouse — to help them keep up with burgeoning demand.

Chicken Cock Island Rooster Rye Whiskey is a limited-edition tropical take on their Straight Kentucky Rye. Why Island Rooster? When the guys took a trip to the Caribbean, they were awakened by roosters who would announce a new day. Naturally, when they came back, they finished 25 barrels of their signature Rye in Caribbean Rum casks where they left the juice for 6 months. The end result was an instant success: relaxed with spicy notes mingling with candied molasses on the rich and smooth palate.
