Episode 105: Black Button Distillery, Rochester’s First And Finest Grain-To-Glass Distillery Since Prohibition

In this episode, Matt talks to Jason Barret, Head Distiller and Founder of Black Button Distillery. Black Button Distillery is proudly based in Rochester, NY and is the first grain-to-glass craft distillery to open since prohibition. Founded in 2012 by Jason Barrett, Black Button Distilling is a New York State licensed Farm Distillery and they use over 90% New York State all-natural ingredients to make all of their spirits.

From a young age, Jason Barrett worked alongside his grandfather in his family’s button factory. It was their hard work, dedication, and commitment to quality that were taught as the principles of any good producer. These core values would later become the foundation of Black Button Distilling. They work exclusively with farmers who take great pride in what they harvest and they never cut corners in the pursuit of making exceptional spirits. This path has led Black Button Distilling to win multiple awards from industry leaders, tasting experts, and consumers.
