An Interview with Bill Owens, Editor of The Art of Distilling Whiskey and Other Spirits

Source: Amazon.com

Bill Owens teamed up with Alan Dikty to produce The Art of Distilling Whiskey and Other Spirits (Quarry Books, 2009).

It is a very handsome book loaded with beautiful photographs and illustrations.  It provides the reader with an introduction to distilling and how spirits differ.  The book also gives the reader a feel for the burgeoning small distilling movement in the U.S.

Bill is the founder of the American Distilling Institute, the mission of which is “to disseminate essential information regarding the art and science of distilling.”

We managed to nab Bill for a short interview.  He had just returned from Europe, where he spent three months visiting artisanal distilleries and cooperages.  Click here to listen to the interview.
