Port finished, barrels strength, what more could you ask for?
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 his small-batch distillery operation in his home town of Rochester. But he is sentimental enough to have named his new rebel business after the family tradition — Black Button Distilling. Today, 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.
At Black Button, grain-to-glass is their specialty, producing over 1,350 bottles of world-class Spirits each week. And every batch is distilled, aged, bottled, labeled, and hand-numbered onsite at the distillery.
Black Button distillery pays homage to Barrett’s grandfather who lived in a world where Barret says “…real men worked hard and drank real pot distilled Whiskey.” Well, we think this release is as “real” as it gets. A Port-finished, barrel strength, single barrel straight Bourbon, bottled unfiltered at an audacious 110.8 proof.
With notes of chocolate, cherry, stone fruit, oak and corn, this Bourbon is aged for a minimum of two years in white oak, then finished for another year in freshly harvested Port casks from Port of NY Winery in Ithaca, NY.
