We have a new spirit – Chicken Cock Whiskey! Established in Paris, Kentucky in 1856, Chicken Cock gained popularity during the 19th century, becoming a staple of Prohibition-era speakeasies, including the Cotton Club, where it was imbibed by jazz greats like Duke Ellington. It then disappeared from the market in the 1950’s after the original distillery burned down, but was recently restored a few years ago.
In 2016, the Chicken Cock Bootlegger’s Blend was released to celebrate its 160th anniversary. With a mash that is 51% rye, 45% corn and 4% malted barley, the whiskey is short, spicy and lovely, so please come in if your interest is piqued.
This week, bar miyako is open as usual from 7pm to 1am on weekdays and from 7pm to 12 midnight on Saturday. Hope to see you all back at the bar again soon!
bar miyako has welcomed a lovely new “world” whisky into its collection and has been reunited with some exotic and unique gins, so please stop by if you’d like a taste!
The new addition is Suntory’s Ao. Released this April, Ao blends whiskies from the world’s five major whisky producing regions: Scotland, Ireland, the US, Canada, and Japan – a pretty cool feat that probably only Suntory, which owns distilleries in all aforementioned countries, can pull off. The name “Ao” is translated to “blue” and refers to the color of the ocean. At the moment, it’s only available in Japan, so please do stop by if you’re interested!
We’ve also restocked the Peruvian Amazonian gin and the iconic Bogart’s Real English gin, so why not walk into this “gin joint” when you have the chance? We’re open as usual from 7pm to 1am on weekdays and from 7pm to 12 midnight on Saturday. Hope to see you soon!
