Dad's Hat founder, Herman Mihalich, wearing his father's fedora and holding a bottle of his company's award winning rye whiskey. Herman told us that rye whiskey has its roots in Pennsylvania, but that "rye" came to mean a low quality product, due to blending with corn whiskey and other spirits in Kentucky and Canada. At one point during the Prohibition, Turkish prune juice and coloring was marketed as "rye whiskey". Thanks to rekindled interest in re-creating the cocktails of earlier centuries, a market for the original PA rye whiskey (80% rye with 20% malt) emerged and in 2010, Herman and his co-workers were ready with a product. Dad's Hat has won awards for its fine taste, which is 100% PA derived. From the rye fields in Riegelsville to the barrels of PA oak, this whiskey makes us happy to say we're Pennsylvanians! A visit to the distillery at the Grundy Commons Complex in Bristol would be a well-attended social event.....
