Take a Tour of Dad’s Hat Distillery and Watch Whiskey Being Made

Before Prohibition, Pennsylvania’s abundant rye crops were turned into whiskey by distilleries all across the state, but the “Noble Experiment” effectively stamped out the entire industry. It’s only recently that a handful of bold entrepreneurs have begun to revive the tradition. Dad’s Hat is one of the start-up craft distilleries bringing rye whiskey back to PA, and you can sign up for a trip to Bristol for a tasting tour.

The next set of one-hour tours will take place this Saturday, July 20, and reservations are available for 1 PM, 2 PM or 3 PM. (The same times are available to reserve on Saturday, August 10.) The distillery is located in a historic commons about 30 minutes north of the city, and tours cost just $10 per person. Expect to get a close look at the distilling and aging process and to taste samples of several of the company’s ryes.

If you can’t make it out to Bristol, you can always find Dad’s Hat at your local Fine Wine and Good Spirits store in several varieties, including unaged white rye and several new barrel-aged options.
