The mission of Dad's Hat is to distill and deliver classic Pennsylvania Rye spirits following over 200 years of American distilling tradition. Working with their community and giving back to the whiskey-loving public is a big part of what truly keeps Dad’s Hat "Pennsylvania Proud".
The mission from the outset was to ultimately produce a great, flavorful whiskey while ensuring genuine Pennsylvania Rye would live on in its purest form. Cultivating relationships with local farms to source the rye locally is vital to that goal. They work with local partners to develop sustainable relationships – tapping into Pennsylvania’s agricultural richness to obtain the highest quality grain for their use while offering fair pricing to farmers and suppliers in their region.
Known for its peppery, spicy bite, Rye serves as the ideal base for cocktails like the Sazerac, Manhattan or Old Fashioned. In order for a spirit to be labeled an American Rye Whiskey, the mash bill must be comprised of at least 51% rye grain. The remainder of the mash is most often a combination of malted barley, wheat or corn. After distillation is complete, the spirit is transferred to unused, charred white oak barrels for a minimum of two years, though many producers choose to age longer.
