Check in with our features blog for spirited insights, timely announcements and exclusive posts direct from the distillery regarding the world of Dad’s Hat Rye Whiskey.
Cheers to the new year! Whiskey expert and industry influencer Fred Minnnick has officially released his roster of “Top American Whiskeys of 2021”. This year, Dad’s Hat Bottled In Bond Straight Rye landed at the 55th spot on this year’s roundup and is the only other Pennsylvania whiskey to make an appearance other than Pittsburgh’s Liberty Pole Spirits.
Dad’s Hat Rye Distiller Herman Mihalich is honored with being recognized for helping bring back this traditional spirit and says, “No doubt that Pennsylvania rye whiskey is now on Fred’s radar. It is great that he explores categories and whiskeys that are not the usual big-name brands.”

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.
