Eby’s Mill

Our Distillery and Tasting Room is located in a renovated grain mill built in the mid 1850’s by Amos Bomberger. Located in historic Lititz, PA and surrounded by Lancaster County farmland, the mill’s location adjacent to now unused railroad tracks stands as a reminder of the large amounts of grain exported.

The mill changed hands several times operating as a bakery, feed store, and paint shop just to name a few.

During renovations we uncovered a small room under the Tasting Room with a ladder and a hoist. Seems like the mill used the space to store molasses before mixing into livestock feed. Since there was no refrigeration and locally we maintain a constant below ground temp of mid 50’s, it was an efficient way to keep the molasses cool and prolong spoilage.

Below is a blank receipt from the last owner of the mill, Elmer Eby. Very thankful to have purchased the receipt, returning it home and adding it to our collection.
