Artisan, small craft distilling is making an international comeback after many decades of large distillery production with limited brands and beverage experiences. A new generation of distillers with diverse, high quality products is emerging.

The Artisan Distilling Workshop was established over 15 years ago by Prof. Kris A. Berglund and representatives from Christian Carl still manufacturers in Germany. The workshop has evolved over the years, adapting to the growing distillling industry. The artisan distilling landscape has changed a great deal in recent years with more distilleries, still and specialized tank fabricators, and other related entities emerging across the country. The artisan distillery industry has following the paths of craft beers and local wineries, offering new adventures for tourism, dining and recreation.

The Artisan Distilling Workshop provides information and training for those either in the artisan distilling business or interested in entering it. In this website, you will find basic information on the field of artisan distilling and a calendar of distilling related events, including our widely-known Artisan Distilling Workshop.

We hope you find the site useful and welcome comments and questions.

Kris Arvid Berglund, Ph.D.
