Black Button

United States Founded in 2013
The Black Button Distillery is a small company run by Jason Barrett, who comes from a long history of producing buttons for men’s suits. Instead of taking over his family’s button factory, Barrett turned to distilling. At 24 Barrett opened his distillery in 2013.

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. Sourcing locally is a big focus for Black Button; each of their suppliers are less than an hour’s drive from the distillery itself, the distillers meet directly with farmers.

The Black Button Distillery offers regular tours and has a tasting room on site so that visitors can try their wares the way they intended.

Tasting boxes with Black Button

The Black Button Distillery is a small business set up and run by Jason Barrett, which takes its name from his family’s long history of producing buttons for men’s suits. Barrett broke tradition, and instead of taking over his grandfather’s button factory, he turned to distilling.

Barrett opened the distillery at the age of just 24, in 2013. Back then, it produced just one Gin and a couple of moonshines (or white Whiskies). Today, the distillery’s portfolio has expanded to include three Bourbons, a Vodka, and another two Gins due for release in 2017.

Provenance is a big focus for Black Button; all of their suppliers are less than an hour’s drive from the distillery itself, meaning that the distillers meet directly with the farmers at their fields to talk crops, seasonality and harvesting, giving them more control over the end Spirits’ final flavors.

The Black Button Distillery offers regular tours and has a tasting room on site so that visitors can try their wares the way they intended.
