Bringing back the Famous Old Brand

Chicken Cock Whiskey has been resurrected, because good hooch never goes out of style. With a rich 160-year-old history and a touch of modernization, the products we’ve created are an unsurpassable collection of original bourbons.

Current Release

Kentucky Straight Bourbon

Distilled, aged, and bottled in Kentucky, Chicken Cock Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey has a rich, elegant mahogany hue; a nose which balances oak tones with sweet notes of dried fruit, caramel, and vanilla; and a palate that opens with soft tannins. A creamy, almost buttery mouthfeel is complemented by butterscotch notes and toasted oak, resolving with a vanilla finish. At 90 proof, there is a slight, welcome bourbon heat. The bourbon is bottled in a replica of the Prohibition-era Chicken Cock bottle.

Proof:
90 (45% alc.)

The Revival of Chicken Cock Whiskey

In 2011, Chicken Cock’s questionable fortune changed when spirits entrepreneur Matti Anttila discovered the brand while researching the early days of distillation in the U.S.

Bardstown Bourbon + Grain & Barrel Spirits

Grain & Barrel joined forces with BBCo to produce custom bourbon and whiskey for the historic Chicken Cock brand which was originally created way back in 1856. The first collaborative distillation produced 616 spectacular barrels.

Beer Barrel Select

In the summer of 2018, we bottled 12 barrels of our award-winning 10 Year Old Double Barrel Bourbon. We then gave 6 of those barrels to our friends at Goodwood Brewing in Louisville to finished their delicious Walnut Brown Ale.
