Craft Spirits On the Map in Philly


As those who attended Philadelphia magazine’s Whiskey & Fine Spirits Festival last fall witnessed, Dad’s Hat is just one of many area distillers making big noise in the craft spirits world. Craft distilling has definitely come a long way since we started making our trademark rye whiskey in Bristol way back in 2012.

From Quakertown to Camden, now you can find burgeoning spirits artisans all over metro Philly, as can be seen with a great interactive map of area distilleries from Visit Philadelphia. See you out on the trail!
