Product Showcase

Chicken Cock Whiskey has released 1,800 bottles of Beer Barrel Select, a blend of Kentucky Bourbons aged up to 11.5 years, finished in Walnut Brown Ale barrels.

This most recent limited release from Chicken Cock Whiskey — one of the oldest American Whiskey brands, est. 1856 in Paris, Kentucky — is from Grain & Barrel Spirits. In the summer of 2018, six barrels that had held Chicken Cock’s 10-Year-Old Double Barrel Bourbon went to Goodwood Brewing in Louisville to finish their Walnut Brown Ale. Once finished, Goodwood Brewing returned those six barrels to Chicken Cock. Chicken Cock Master Distiller Gregg Snyder, working alongside O.Z. Tyler’s Master Distiller Jacob Call, then filled them with a blend of 100% Kentucky Bourbon aged up to 11.5 years.

The bourbon then finished in the six barrels for six months before final blending and bottling, yielding 1,800 bottles of this all-Kentucky collaborative release.

Beer Barrel Select is full-bodied, with initial notes of butterscotch, caramel and vanilla, the company reports, followed by a hint of toasted oak, and then a sweet finish with nut and chocolate flavors. It is non-chill filtered.

This whiskey is available in AL, CO, FL, GA, IL, KY, LA, MS, NC, SC and TN, as well as online.

The suggested retail price is $80 per 750-ml. bottle.
