Distiller to speak at Beck’s Mill


Beck’s Mill will be hosting guest speaker Alan Bishop to discuss the history of distilling in Indiana’s Black Forest.

This event will take place from 4 to 7 p.m. Saturday at the mill, 4433 S. Beck’s Mill Road, Salem. Tickets are $10, and the proceeds will benefit the historic mill.

Tastings and bottle sales will begin at 4 p.m. for those 21 and over.

Bishop was born and raised in Indiana and grew up around stills his whole life. He was introduced to distilling at the age of 3 and has been fascinated with it ever since.

He is looking forward to speaking on the history as one of southern Indiana’s only distilling historians. He will be demonstrating the distilling process as well as informing people on the spirituality behind distilling.

“There’s a taste for distilling right now in Indiana,” Bishop said. “We are going to delve into the traditional history of distilling and where distilling comes from.”
