Established in 2012, Black Button Distilling was Rochester’s first grain-to-glass distillery since prohibition. Jason Barrett, the founder, and head distiller comes from a family who manufactured buttons, hence the name Black Button. It is called a black button though because Jason is color blind. They are now expanding their production and will continue to be based in downtown Rochester, New York.


Black Button Bourbon Single Barrel Store Pick
Proof 112 / 56% ABV
Barrel # 3092
Mashbill: 60% Corn • 20% Wheat • 11% Malted Barley • 9% Rye — all of their grains are grown within NYS
Age: 3 years, 6 months
60 bottles

Holly’s Tasting Notes: Chocolate mousse, peanuts, vanilla, and chai spices. I’m serious, a bit of carrot cake with vanilla frosting. The palate shows a small amount of that rye spice followed by orange zest, charred figs, and other dried fruits. A long, chalky, and chocolate malt finish.

Charles’ Tasting Notes: The nose is cherry cola, raspberry, jam, oats, and cereal – fruit loops! The palate is bright, a juice bomb with caramel, oak, and baking spices along with apple pie. The finish is long with starbursts, sugar cookies, and ice cream.
