Return to the time before Prohibition, where bold flavors flowed and Spirits ran free.

When Jason Barrett was a little boy, he spent his days toiling away in his family's button factory alongside his grandpa. While his heart yearned for a factory to call his own, the colorful buttons weren't exactly his forte due to a teeny tiny snag that stood in his way—color blindness. Buttons, it seemed, were not destined to be his true calling. However, driven by the unyielding values of hard work, entrepreneurship, and community instilled by his grandfather, Jason channeled his passion into something extraordinary: Black Button Distilling. The first grain-to-glass distillery in Rochester’s opened its door in 2012, crafting daring Spirits with locally sourced ingredients and celebrating blessings hidden within life's hurdles.

In those daring days before Bourbon was banned, distillers played a corny game, using corn as their budget-friendly muse in the mash bills. With time running short in the barrels, these Spirits got bottled with an extra kick, a proof that packed a bold wallop for those brave enough to take a sip.

Black Button Pre-Prohibition Style Straight Bourbon is crafted using their Rochester Style process, boasting a mash bill of 80% Corn, 10% Malted Barley, and 10% Rye. Aged for a minimum of 4 years, it possesses the very essence of those Whiskey legends from over a century ago—strong, bold, and unyielding. The delightful blend of earthiness, tinged with a dash of muted caramel and vanilla sweetness, lifts worldly debates to new heights and sparks character-filled conversations. Drink neat or with a cube and bid a gleeful farewell to Prohibition.

A bit harsh

It's okay, but pretty harsh without ice.

Completely Original

I really liked this whiskey, courtesy of the 2023 Advent Calendar. That toffee taste is something I didn't know I'd like in a whiskey.

Meh...

This tastes very, very young for a 5 yo bourbon. Malt and alcohol on the nose. cohol continues on the pallette, with some green apple and pepper sices. Dry i the back of the mouth. Finish is dry, pepperly and not particularly memorable.

moonshine bourbon

first review of this one!

sweet, peppery, charred, earthy, very smooth

It hits like the best of both bourbon and moonshine, incredibly drinkable but with a bit of high burn for nostalgia.

highly recommend

Very Smooth

I put one cube into my glencarin and mellowed it nicely. This one is smooth for the proof and I want to share a glass with a friend of mine that is a bourbon fanatic!
