Adam Flatt’s mother, Elaine Pivinski, opened the Lehigh Valley’s first winery in 1981.
Flatt is now on target to open the region’s first distillery next month.
Flatt, who co-owns Franklin Hill Vineyards in Lower Mount Bethel Township with his mother, is just weeks away from opening Social Still distillery in Bethlehem.
“It’s cool we have that pioneering tradition continuing,” he said.
Social Still is on target to have a soft opening the first week of December, Flatt said last week during a tour of the new operation. Work on the building is about 80 percent complete and the company is planning its first batch of vodka and gin later this week, Flatt said.
