About

In 1856, James A. Miller established the Chicken Cock Whiskey brand in Paris, Ky., after his successful venture producing his celebrated J.A. Miller’s Old Bourbon, which dates back to the late 1830s. In the decades that followed, Chicken Cock Whiskey became a nationally-distributed brand that was synonymous with a high-quality reputation and was the first brand in Bourbon County to ship its whiskey internationally. The distillery survived multiple fires and Prohibition but was discontinued by National Distillers in 1950 due to a decline in whiskey popularity in the U.S.In 2012, Matti Anttila, Grain & Barrel Spirits CEO, rediscovered the brand and set out to resurrect it to its high-quality reputation and celebrated past. Since then, Chicken Cock Whiskey has become one of the most rapidly-growing whiskey brands with its award-winning Kentucky Straight Bourbon and Kentucky Straight Rye whiskey releases, along with multiple highly sought-after limited releases, which are made in partnership with Bardstown Bourbon Company as part of its collaborative distillation program.
