The Alton Classics


NEW YORK 5 YEAR OLD STRAIGHT
RYE WHISKEY

The character of all the Alton’s whiskeys lies in the making of the spirit, from the quality of the grains to the spectacular water of the estate, to the final distillation in our small copper stills, from which only the heart is kept for maturation in white American oak casks.

INNOVATION AND SUSTAINABILITY

There is no better example to describe the evolution of the craft distiller movement than realizing what  happened in the American Rye Whiskey phenomenon. 

Craft distillers, clearly led by enlightened masters, have managed to change the Rye Whiskey reputation to become the No.1 choice of whiskey lovers in the world. 

It’s nice to see this when it happens, in the arts it’s called Renaissance.

In our case, in addition to the use of the local high quality winter rye and the fantastic characteristics of the Catskill water, the sour mash and adding a small amount of malted rye have translated our desired goal into pleasant reality.
