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 water, good water is everywhere.

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.

THE ALTON ESTATE

The scale and diversity of the estate is unique among distilleries and is managed in harmony with the beautiful landscape, the historical building, the culture and tradition of the place. We are custodians of this prostine land, its water and its inhabitants.

The gratitude of the rare quality of water, an obsession with the conservation of the environment, the admiration for the honest local agriculture, are the driving elements since the birth of The Alton adventure.

STATE OF THE ART STILLS

.The size and the shape of our copper stills gives the spirit perfect contact for the final distillation. It is a fundamental element for the creation of the rich, complex, and inimitable Alton Whiskey.

It is from the stills that we carefully draw the finest quality of whiskey to fill our seasoned white American new oak casks for the long aging journey.

Colonial Craftsmanship and new age techniques celebrating tradition and innovation
