Inside The Alton


NESTLED AMONG WATER

The name Alton in its ancient meaning holds and portrays our destiny to be near water. The Distillery is surrounded by a large Estate where good water is everywhere.

Tradition and Innovation


FOUNDED IN 2010

The Alton Distillery is one of the oldest distilleries in New York State. Our distillers have charted a path to be pioneers and creators of innovative changes. Aware of the giant of tradition sitting on their shoulders, they never hesitated to question the rules of the industry, to look for new aromatic structures and to implement alternative processing solutions.

Our Mission


THE COVENANT FOR THE RESURRECTION

The Alton Distillery envisions creating an avante-garde hub for the art of distilling by using at best our extraordinary existing infrastructures, implementing the incredible New York State resoures, for a tangible support of the local community.

The Alton’s ultimate goal is to establish a long lasting relationship based on respect, sharing, professionalism and transparency. The collaboration and the exchange of experiences are therefore fundamental for our approach in the management of both the social and environamental sustainabilty aspects as well as for the business aspects of our activities.
