Chicken Cock Island Rooster Rum Barrel Rye

Chicken Cock is kicking off what it terms the “Summer of the Rooster” with a new limited-edition release of Island Rooster Rum Barrel Rye.

The new expression starts with Chicken Cock’s Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey and is finished in Caribbean rum casks for at least six months. Island Rooster has a 95% rye and 5% malted barley mash bill, which is bottled at 95 proof (47.5% ABV) in an apothecary-style embossed bottle featuring a premium metal cup cap –perfect for pouring while outside this summer.

Island Rooster was inspired by a trip to the Caribbean, where roosters announce the coming day. With this new release, Chicken Cock is announcing its “Summer of the Rooster” program where the brand will showcase its bold, confident, and expressive take on the iconic Chicken Cock rooster.

Chicken Cock Island Rooster Rum Barrel Rye won a Gold Medal at the 2022 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. Production was limited to only 25 barrels. Island Rooster is available for the suggested retail price of $199.99 per 750ml bottle online on Chicken Cock’s website, via Reserve Bar, or at fine retailers in CA, CO, FL, GA, IL, KY, MA, NY, SC, TN, TX, and WI.
