Pennsylvania, which was once another of the great rye-producing regions, also suffered the consequences of the prohibition. Luckily the talent of entrepreneurs such as Herman Mihalich and John Cooper has done much to rekindle past traditions. Welcome to Dad’s Hat Distillery, whose grain is grown in nearby farms and where the fermenting, distilling and aging processes combine to bring together local customs and technological progress.
DAD’S HAT PENNSYLVANIA RYE
A perfect balance between rye and malted barley, new and aged oak barrels and smoothness and complexity: this is the purest expression of a Pennsylvania rye. The spiciness of the rye brings extra pep to this round, smooth Dad’s Hat Pennsylvania Rye.
Floral and spicy on the nose with a well-balanced mouth feel and flavor – up-front and back-end spice, cinnamon on the mid-palate. Underlying notes of dried fruit and black cherry with hints of tobacco, vanilla and oak.
