Meet the first Chicken Cock Straight Rye in over 70 years.

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 Whiskey Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey is proof that you need great wood for great Rye Whiskey. Aged in American white oak from the Appalachian Mountains in West Virginia, the time spent in wood imparts the Whiskey with complex layers of spices, vanilla, pepper, butterscotch, citrus, oak… Ideal for sipping neat or adding some character to your cocktails. Oh, and the Tasting Panel awarded it a whopping 95 points.
