Episode 87: The Famous Old Brand, Chicken Cock Whiskey

In this episode, Matt talks to Gregg Snyder, Master Distiller at Chicken Cock Whiskey. Established in 1856 in Paris, Kentucky, a town tucked away in the heart of Bourbon County, the original Chicken Cock American Whiskey rose to popularity during the 19th century. James A. Miller built a distillery and started making Chicken Cock, a type of whiskey unique to the bluegrass region. It was an infamous staple of prohibition-era speakeasies, like the Cotton Club, and was smuggled inside in nondescript tin cans. Unfortunately, the original distillery where Chicken Cock was made, burned down in the 1950s. Known as The Famous Old Brand, Chicken Cock Whiskey has now been resurrected, because good spirits never go out of style. Staying true to the rich 160-year-old brand identity while modernizing it just a touch, the products we’ve created are an unsurpassable collection of heritage whiskies.
