One way is to use the US Patent and Trademark website search. Here is a link to a search for Addison-Wesley in ALL fields.... there is no mention of "distilled" being registered as a word mark (not trademark, those are for logos and such).

Or just go to the USPTO home: and click on Trademarks and then Search.

It looks to me like using Distilled is fine here. If a lawyerly letter comes your way asking you to cease and desist someday, write back saying "Oh, I'm so sorry, but if you can please refer me to the serial number and registration number for your U.S. word mark registration with which my use of "Zope 3 Distilled" is in conflict, so that I can refer this to my attorneys, I would be ever so grateful. However I cannot possibly take any action based solely on your kind letter alone. I look forward to hearing from you again. XOX, Baiju."

I recommend you verify that you can use the "Distilled" name.  I believe
computer book titles of that form are protected by an Addison-Wesley

How can I verify this. There are some titles from  Addison-Wesley.

But there is one from Apress also:
