Dad’s Hat Scores Best In Show from Ascot Awards

As you may have seen, a Dad’s Hat Single Barrel selection that was submitted to Fred Minnick’s Ascot Awards received a Double Platinum medal and was chosen Best in Class to compete for the overall Best in Show award. We were up against single barrel selections from some of the big boys in the industry (Heaven Hill/Elijah Craig – Jim Beam/Knob Creek – Wild Turkey/Russel Reserve).

This particular barrel that was selected in collaboration with our distributor in New York, PM Spirits. They market special selections like this as part of their Collab (oration) series and use these selections to raise the profile of the brands involved – as well as their own. We are proud to announce that Dad’s Hat Collab Single Barrel Straight Rye won BEST IN SHOW in their Best Single Barrel Pick Competition.
