Proof66 Notes

Chicken Cock is a line of unusually flavored whiskeys with a chicken on the bottle, though in this case this is a classic, unflavored bourbon. The bourbon is offered without an age statement and no specification on the grain bill, though the marketing acknowledges that it is a younger whiskey. It is bottled at a cocktail- and ice-resistant strength of 90.

According to the 2013 filling with the federal Tax and Trade Bureau, the whiskey is produced out of rectification and flavor specialists Terressentia out of South Carolina but owned by Matti Antilla of Grain and Barrel Brands (formerly Island Club Brands) of Florida, though the bottle mentions a Chicken Cock Whiskey as the owner.

The Chicken Cock brand is said to have a heritage going back to the 19th century (established in 1856) and later enjoying fame as a smuggled brand from Canada during the evil, tyrannical times of Prohibition. Today, the bottle is offered not in tin but in a "quick chill" aluminum bottle. The website notes that the Cotton Club was famous for serving it tableside in a sealed tin can.
