Our classic rye recipe features only rye grain and malt to deliver a pure expression of Pennsylvania Rye Whiskey. Barrel aging for least six months in charred, new oak quarter casks allows the genuine rye flavor to evolve quickly. As a result, the small batch whiskey is ensured of reaching the right balance of complexity and smoothness. The final product is a very smooth spirit that delivers the up-front spice that rye is known for while finishing with a full, round mouthfeel.
Going back to colonial days, Pennsylvania had a long tradition of distilling sweeter, more robust Monongahela rye-also called Pennsylvania rye. Dad's Hat is giving that style a resurgence. The bright and fruity scent mixes vanilla and tropical fruit. The flavor also has a funky edge, like overripe bananas and honey, finishing with sparks of spicy ginger. Silky texture.
