“The inspiration for the restaurant is the Declaration of Independence, so we tried to fold in elements that make sense, like serving a rye from Philly,” he told Thrillist.

His visit to Philadelphia’s Dad’s Hat distillery was documented in Thrillist. Thanks for the press! Click here to read the full article.

Dad’s Hat was named “Craft Whiskey Distillery of the Year” in the March issue of Whiskey Advocate. The distiller told Thrillist, “everybody doubled their orders,” and they are now running in short supply due to high demand. But we’ve got it at Declaration!
