Originally established in Paris, Kentucky in 1856, Chicken Cock was forced to move production up to Canada during Prohibition. The Canadian Rye whiskey produced during that period was then smuggled back into the U.S. in tin cans, earning the brand the nickname, “The whiskey in a tin can.”
This replica Pre-prohibition era collectible tin cannister honors our history and a limited-time-only return to a period where Chicken Cock ventured north in order to carry on its tradition of bringing high quality whiskey to patrons across the country.
