– About – 


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
our Extraordinary
existing infrastructure.

Implementing the
incredible local natural
larder of resources.

Supporting our
entire dedicated
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

– Defining Character – 


For Every expression of the Alton, the quality of the whiskey is largely dependent  on the quality of the oak casks it is matured in. 

Sourced, crafted, toasted and seasoned under the watchful eye of  Alton Master Distiller Calvin Burk.
