Visit #2 To Dad’s Hat

All they do is continue making exceptional Rye Whiskey. Herman (co-owner and distiller) gave the tour which was informative and educational. We sampled a number of their offerings and the 95 Proof Straight Rye continues to be one of our favorites along with the Classic. None of their offerings disappoint. We couldn’t pass up on a bottle of their Rock n Rye. It’s Christmas in a bottle. Complex flavors that linger on the palate. This is a limited release and it’s our guess that they will be increasing production for next year. Aways looking forward to see what comes off of the still in Bristol, PA. This needs to be a must visit on your own Fermented Adventure. www.dadshatrye.com
