THE ALTON DISTILLERY
“ When the fat old sun in the sky is falling
Summer evenin’ birds are calling.
Summer’s thunder time of year
The sound of music in my ears”
THE ALTON DISTILLERY
The Alton Distillery is one of the oldest distilleries in New York State, located on our 30-acre Estate in the heart of the Catskill Mountains. We are custodians of this pristine land, its water, and its inhabitants.
The name Alton in its ancient meaning holds and portrays our destiny to be near water.
The gratitude for the rare quality of the 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 Distillery adventure.
The Alton Distillery envisions creating an avant-garde hub for the art of distilling by:
Using at best
incredible local natural
larder of resources.
and creative team.
Leaving our world
a better place
than we found it.
The Alton’s goal is to establish long lasting relationships 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 environmental sustainability aspects as well as for the business aspects of our activities. We stand with those who are committed to ensuring the use of their business as a positive and constructive force.
