Chicken Cock Ryeteous Blonde

Grain & Barrel Spirits has launched Chicken Cock Ryeteous Blonde, a new limited-edition expression, in partnership with Goodwood Brewing in Louisville, Kentucky.

This marks the company’s second beer-barrel finish collaboration with Goodwood. With only six barrels produced, Ryeteous Blonde will be allocated in limited quantities to select states.

This Kentucky straight rye whiskey finished in original Chicken Cock Kentucky Straight Bourbon barrels that were used by Goodwood to age their Blonde Ale.

Chicken Cock Ryeteous Blonde is 90 proof. This rye features a mash bill of 95% rye and 5% malted barley. It was not chill-filtered. Aromas include cinnamon, brown sugar, hint of dark chocolate, slight grassiness, with complimentary overtones of malted barley and sweet oak, the company says. The taste features butterscotch, caramel, toffee and allspice, followed by a hint of toasted oak.

Chicken Cock Ryeteous Blonde Whiskey was 100% distilled, aged, finished and bottled in the Bluegrass State, and bottled in a Prohibition-era replica apothecary-style bottle. It is a limited-edition offering with only 1,428 total 750-ml. bottles available in select markets — AL, AR, CO, FL, GA, IL, IN, KS, KY, LA, MO, MS, NC, NY, OK, SC, TN and WV — for the suggested retail price of $89.99 each.
