Chicken Cock Rye Whiskey

Your Price: $79.95
Chicken Cock Rye Whiskey Distilled, aged, and bottled in Kentucky, Chicken Cock Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey has a rich caramel color with a hue of dark orange. A nose with pepper, a hint of cinnamon, grassiness, and sweet oak lactones. A taste which offers a tremendous complexity of spices, vanilla, butterscotch, pepper with a hint of dryness and slight overtones of citrus and oak. Very long, slow peppery finish with a hint of sweet honey and a wonderful buttery mouthfeel. The whiskey is bottled in a prohibition-era replica of the original Chicken Cock bottle, non-chill filtered, 95% rye. While Chicken Cock may have taken a sabbatical, James A. Miller’s Chicken Cock legacy was never forgotten. Grain & Barrel Spirits has revived this historic brand and has given new life to The Famous Old Brand while maintaining the quality and legitimacy of the product. The first Chicken Cock Kentucky Straight Rye in over 70 years is now available for purchase. 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.
