The taste of a grown-up summer.

In 2012, Jason Barrett was a 24 year-old working in his great-grandfather’s button-making factory in Upstate New York, just like four generations of his family. But he was made for a different path. Before the year was out, he started a small batch distillery operation in his hometown of Rochester.

But he is sentimental enough to have named his new rebel business after the family tradition — Black Button Distilling. Today, four years later, he has developed a range of unique products including a few Gins, their Four Grain Bourbon, a Fernet, two Moonshines, Vodka, and an interesting “Bourbon Cream” liqueur.

Jason likes Gin. He likes it a lot. But this rebel also thinks that Gin shouldn’t “hit you in the face with a Christmas Tree.” To him that means that the juniper needs to be there, but should take a back seat to some of the other botanicals. So in addition to their floral “Lilac Gin,” they have added Black Button Citrus Forward Gin to their line-up with an emphasis on orange zest and local hops. It seems like a small thing, but the difference really works — so much so that Food and Beverage magazine named it the “Official Gin of Summer.”

Few Gin Distillers Make Their Own Alcohol. Gin usually starts with neutral spirit: A commodity that in distillers buy in bulk. It’s what the distiller does with this commodity in the flavour-infusing process that makes each Gin different.

Matthew
Matthew,
Grapefruit soda lime and THIS!
 
Steven
Steven,
If I like licorice I would make this higher than seven. Classic coniferous start with a black licorice finish, not enough to be overpowering but enough to notice.
 
Aaron
Aaron,
I find it interesting to read the love it-hate it comments here....I found this to be one of the best gins I've ever tasted. I like peppery, and this has that, with, to me, a perfect blend of sweetness and light citrus to balance it. VERY flavorful and I'm thrilled to have gotten the Ginaissance tasting kit and discovered it!
 
Samantha
Samantha,
I found notes of coriander and black currant. Reminded me more of Ophir spiced gin than anything else. Good, just not what I was expecting from the notes.
 
Jenna
Jenna,
Something about this just seems... unbalanced? The flavors don’t seem to meld well. And I like different gins a lot. But this one... this one just doesn’t speak to me. Unsure what I’ll do with the bottle.
 
Tina
Tina,
Did not care for this at all. Started with it on the rocks, moved to dirty gin and tonic (my normal drink) and could not drink it.
 
David
David,
Really liked the coriander flavor coming through. Good citrus as well.
 
Timothy
Timothy,
It’s well made with subtle citrus and botanicals, but I thought the coriander was too much-almost licorice at the start. Still, it is an interesting little potion.
 
John
John,
Very disappointed in taste. I was expecting more orange flavoring, but overall taste profile is unappealing

Alexander,
A summery gin. Something to be had with a slice of cucumber and water crackers and mild cheese and grapes. Think of August evenings, fireflies, and laughter.
 
David
David,
It's nice because its not heavy. Not overpowering. Not lingering. Very good for a spring summer time. Smoother.

Smooth and flavorful with the perfect aftertaste. The fact it’s local to me is just a bonus.

Jedediah,
I agree the after taste not a fan of. But the first taste pretty good. It's a nice mixer gin. But not my favourite.
 
Charles
Charles,
Not my favorite gin but not the worst that I have ever tasted either. The floral notes were great it just seemed to have a strange after taste.
