Originally founded in Paris, Kentucky in 1856, Chicken Cock Whiskey rose to fame during Prohibition as the house whiskey at the Cotton Club. In 2013 we brought The Famous Old Brand back and it's better than ever!

 

Brand History

Chicken Cock was first distilled in Paris, KY in 1856. While it became a pretty big Bourbon brand during the 19th century, Chicken Cock really hit its stride during Prohibition as the house whiskey at the famous Cotton Club in Harlem. At the Cotton Club it became known as "The Whiskey in a Tin Can" due to how it was smuggled in to avoid the long arm of the law. A distillery fire in the 1950's put an end to the brand's initial run. 

Current Releases

In celebration of our 160th birthday, we're excited to release the first bourbon and rye to bare the Chicken Cock name in over 50 years! Our Bootlegger's Reserve is a limited edition blend of some of the finest Bourbon and Rye we could get our hands on. Our Heritage Reserve is 100% Bourbon. Both are younger whiskeys, resulting in a lighter style, perfect for mixing, drinking on the rocks or neat. 

Bootlegger's Wins Gold!

Our Bootlegger's Reserve was recently awarded a Gold Medal at the 2016 CRAFT Competition. This blend of Rye and Bourbon is winning awards and fans across the U.S. Bootlegger's brother Heritage Reserve took home Silver after winning another Silver at the prestigious San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
