Our Whiskey

Elegant Flavor Profile

Distilled, aged, and bottled in Kentucky, Chicken Cock Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey has a rich, elegant mahogany color and a nose that’s a nice balance of oak and sweet notes with dried fruit, caramel, and vanilla. The gentle flavor is a soft tannin start that finishes with delightful toasted oak lactones. As it slides down your throat, the taste evolves into a creamy, buttery sensation with butterscotch notes and a vanilla wafer finish. Just to make sure you’re giving this spirit its due respect, Chicken Cock packs a heat that lets you know its the real-deal; full-bodied and 90-proof.  In keeping with its authenticity, our bourbon is bottled in prohibition-era replica bottles modeled after the original Chicken Cock packaging.

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.

Current Limited Release

Ryeteous Blonde Beer Barrel

For our second beer barrel finish release, we collaborated again with our friends at Goodwood Brewing in Louisville. Bourbon was the star of the first release, this time around Rye takes center stage. Goodwood used original Chicken Cock Kentucky Straight Bourbon barrels to finish their delicious Blonde Ale. When they were done, we took those barrels back and filled them with our Kentucky Straight Rye. The result is a delicious marriage of sweet bourbon flavor and rye spiciness, with notes of hops.
