Altar is a relative newcomer to Santa Fe’s burgeoning distillery landscape alongside Tumbleroot and Santa Fe Spirits, and one with a gorgeous flagship tasting room in the Railyard that my friends still in their 20s swear by. Shoemaker tells SFR she and Gust opened Altar in January 2020—we all know what happened two months later. Still, she says, they made it through thanks to a stellar staff, some killer package/retail and batch deals and high-quality products. You’ll find As Above So Below in restaurants like Joseph’s and La Choza; and while I was originally on the fence about yet another booze establishment in what I refer to as the Railyard Drinking District, consider me an Altar convert.
