160th Anniversary Single Barrel 8 Year Old Bourbon

The wait is over! Barrel #1 of our 160th Anniversary Single Barrel 8 Year Old Bourbon is now available online! Once they are gone that’s it. We estimate we’ll get 240 bottles from this barrel, which we will be bottling over the next two weeks. Each bottle will be labeled with Barrel number and Bottle number. Having just won a DOUBLE GOLD MEDAL at the prestigious San Francisco World Spirits Competition, this is without a doubt the best whiskey to bear the Chicken Cock name in a century!

Our 160th Anniversary Limited Release is bottled in a replica of a pre-prohibition Chicken Cock bottle discovered at the Lexington Visitor’s Center. It’s truly a work of art. We’ll release 30 barrels total, one at a time, starting with the most special of all – Barrel #1. Bottles from this Barrel will ONLY be sold online, first come, first served.

The Famous Old Brand Returns to Kentucky

Originally founded in 1856 in Paris, Kentucky, Chicken Cock has been the toast of Prohibition, an exile in Canada and then a casualty of trends after WWII. In celebration of its 160th birthday we’ve brought The Famous Old Brand back to its home state. Now available in Kentucky via our distributor partner RNDC, we’re proud to announce the introduction of Heritage Reserve (100% Bourbon) and Bootlegger’s Reserve (60% Bourbon/40% Rye). Both are blends of some of the best whiskey we could get our hands on. Younger for a lighter style. Perfect for a cocktail or equally delicious neat or on the rocks. Cheers!
