Proof66 Notes

Dad's Hat Pennsylvania rye is made with 100% rye grain grown in Pennsylvania (many rye whiskeys are blended with barley, corn or other grains). The rye is aged in charred American oak "quarter casks" (smaller barrels than the standard 55-gallon drums in order to promote greater contact with the wood) for "a minimum of 6 months." This is a very short period of time for whiskey in general but with the quarter casks will gain more oak. In this expression, the whiskey is given a finish in Vya vermouth barrels... an unusual move that we expect will be similar to wine-finished whiskey.

Mountain Laurel Spirits was founded by Herman Mihalich and John Cooper in Pennsylvania, which they regard as the birthplace of rye whiskey. The name of the spirits—Dad's Hat—are in honor of Mihalich's father who owned a large inventory of hats and wore them as a "subtle, personal signature." Mihalich has a background in chemical engineering with a BS from the University of Pennsylvania and an MBA from Wharton. Cooper was a college friend of Mihalich's, who met each other as students at Wharton and came together 3 decades later to found the company.
