Pennsylvania Rye Whiskey is truly America’s original whiskey. In the 18th century, many Pennsylvania farmers were using their surplus rye grain to distill homemade whiskey. The federal government decided to tax the product leading to what was call the “Whiskey Rebellion”. After Prohibition, Pennsylvania Rye Whiskey and its distillers never fully recovered from the damage done to the product’s reputation by bootleggers and mediocre quality...
After being inspired by a revival in rye whiskey, Herman Mihalich decided to leave the chemical industry to develop a rye whiskey made in the “Pennsylvania Tradition”. He would later go on to found Mountain Laurel Spirits in 2011 in Bristol becoming the first Pennsylvania distillery to make rye whiskey since 1990.
Herman Mihalich served the chemical industry for thirty years prior to founding Mountain Laurel Spirits, LLC. His career included a variety of roles ranging from engineering to executive for global companies like Rhodia (now Solvay). Herman holds a Chemical Engineering degree from UPenn and a MBA from Wharton.
In a way, Herman Mihalich’s childhood in Monessen, Pennsylvania predicted his future as the founder of Dad’s Hat Pennsylvania Rye Whiskey. It was there, after all, living in an apartment above his family’s bar, where Mihalich experienced the sights, sounds and stories that would eventually inspire him to reintroduce the world to Pennsylvania’s once-rich rye whiskey-producing heritage.
