Chicken Cock Whiskey was first established in 1856 in Paris... Paris, Kentucky, that is; a town tucked away in the heart of Bourbon County. One hundred sixty two years ago, James A. Miller built a distillery and started making a type of whiskey unique to the Bluegrass region, bourbon. He named his whiskey Chicken Cock.
Chicken Cock’s Rapid Growth
Growth, Prosperity, and Imitation
The G.G. White Distillery continued to grow in size and production capabilities. Eventually, the distillery grounds included a cooperage, cattle barn, and grain bins. Hundreds of heads of cattle and hogs were fed the spent grain mash, or slop. The cooperage crafted handmade wooden barrels for the bourbon to age in, while White continued to prove to be a keen and determined businessman.

Through BBCo’s distilling program, Chicken Cock's Master Distiller Gregg Snyder will collaborate with Bourbon Hall of Fame Master Distiller Steve Nally (formerly with Maker's Mark) and BBCo’s distilling team, led by Executive Director of Distilling Operations, John Hargrove, to produce its high-quality, small-batch whiskey, bourbon, and rye for many years to come.
Limited Release #2
Chicken Cock 10 Year Old Double Barrel Bourbon is the brand's most unique and special limited release yet. Chicken Cock's Master Distiller selected twelve barrels of 10-year-old bourbon, marrying two barrels at a time to create a perfectly balanced, extremely smooth, small batch bourbon (only 1,980 bottles were produced). Through countless samplings, he determined the “perfect proof” at 104-proof, with just a slight amount of pure water to open up the amazing flavors, and non-chill filtered to retain the rich amber colors and exquisite taste profile.
