New Infusion Ideas

We create bourbons that alone are easy to sip then infused with enticing flavors that will heighten on-the-rocks and in-cocktail experiences. New Flavors are always being developed.

Commited to Kindness

By partnering with local businesses and charities, we pledge to donate a minimum of $500 a year to give back to the community.

Sustainable Spirit Making

We’ve carefully selected our building materials, equipment, processes, bottling and packaging with the environment in mind. 

About Us

Welcome to ARK Distillery, a small women-owned establishment nestled in the heart of Colchester, CT founded by Alane Wilansky and Susan Caron. Housed within the beautifully restored Westchester Woods Historic Building, we are dedicated to crafting exceptional spirits while making a positive impact in our community.

At ARK Distillery, we believe that acts of random kindness can create ripples of change. That’s why we are committed to hosting charity events and donating a portion of our proceeds each year to local causes close to our hearts. We strive to embody our name by spreading love and generosity with every bottle we create.

Our passion lies in the art of bourbon-making. We combine expertise and tradition to produce exquisite bourbons. These spirits find their way to our distillery in Colchester, where we meticulously finish them, infusing each bottle with our own unique touch.

Join us on this journey as we invite you to indulge in the rich flavors, craftsmanship, and the spirit of giving that define ARK Distillery. Together, let’s raise a glass and celebrate the joy of fine spirits, community support, and the power of random acts of kindness. Cheers to new beginnings! 🥃❤️


Our Process

At ARK Distillery we start with a pure neutral spirit which we process through our finishing still and infuse with hearty gains, fresh spices and various decadent fruits to create an individual flavor that will
delight your taste buds.
