About Albany Distilling Co.
Tucked away in a former 19th century coal yard, The Albany Distilling Company has been distilling superb craft spirits since July 2012. Their small, but extremely talented team, lead by owners John Curtin and Richard Sicari, are dedicated to making high-quality craft spirits, one batch at a time.
Albany Distilling Company introduced itself to the world of craft spirits with whiskey and rum. Their whiskey started with a bourbon mash that they first released as a new make, then eventually as a three-month-old bourbon. Their award-winning rum was inspired by their proximity to Albany’s original 18th century distillery and followed a recipe from the era.
Over the years, Albany Distilling Company has expanded their line to include an array of spirits, including clean, gluten-free vodka, a range of whiskeys and other special products created in collaboration with other local Albany businesses.
