Black Button Distilling

Rochester, NY

Black Button Distilling is a departure for the Barrett family who has, for four generations, produced the finest buttons for mens’ suits. Taking some of the lessons learned in the button factory and applying them to the world of small-batch distilling, Black Button Distilling pays homage to this family tradition in a new way. They still work hard, create with their hands and are committed to quality - and their output speaks for itself. Black Button is a 100% grain to glass facility working with only NY grains, proof of their strong ties to local agriculture.

20-Plate Vodka

95% Soft Winter Wheat, 5% Malted Barley and 100% NY made from grain to glass

750ML 42% ABV/84 proof

Black Button 20-Plate Vodka is a surprisingly smooth foundation you can build your drink and your evening on. Black Button Wheat-based Vodka is made from soft white wheat grown on a family farm situated on the western slopes of Conesus Lake. It is this local grain that gives us the smooth taste, body, and feel that every distiller desires for their Vodka, and we are proud to have such desirable grain growing right here in the rich soil of the Finger Lakes Region.
