About
We are Rochester NY's first and finest craft distillery since prohibition. Located at the Rochester Public Market making only the finest Vodka, Gin and Whiskey from New York State grains. Since 1922 my family has provided some of the finest men's suit buttons available. For Four generations these buttons have closed suits worn by Presidents, Popes, Kings, and Businessmen the world over. From a young age I went to work in my grandfather's factory but it was clear I was meant for a different path. I broke tradition and decided to make whiskey, but the lessons I learned in his factory as a kid still guide me to this day; work hard, work with your hands, make your product the best on the market, and you can't cheat time. My distillery pays homage to my grandfather and the world he knew - where real men worked hard and drank real pot distilled whiskey. My name is Jason Barrett, I started my craft distillery at 24 years old, and I love distilling. I hope you will try our small batch, grain to glass spirits and join me in raising a glass to Living Large in Small Batches.

Supreme Gin and Juice

Black Button Lilac Gin is incredibly smooth and flavorful! Unlike the popular national brands such as Tanqueray and Bombay, I can enjoy Black Button's Lilac Gin on ice alone or with a squeeze of fresh lime. When I add tonic water it's hard to control the urge to drink it down like iced tea or lemonade on a blistering hot day.

Amazing date night
Dec 2019 • Couples
The Black Button Distillery tour was the best activity I’ve done in Rochester in six years of living here. It was so fun and informative, and came with a free tasting and a free shot glass. The atmosphere was wonderful, and I will certainly come back for a craft cocktail. I would recommend this to any person of legal drinking age who visits or lives in Rochester, NY.

Nothing Wowed me.

We did the Tasting Trifecta for $7 and you keep the glass. Nothing we tasted wowed us enough to make a purchase. A good way to sample without breaking the bank.

Great Place to Meet!
Jul 2018 • Friends
We were in Rochester for an engagement party and this location was chosen to meet the grooms family. A better place couldn't have been chosen. Interesting building. Good bartenders and we absolutely loved the tour of the distillery. A fun way to meet new extended family members and enjoy the evening.

Great Bloody Mary
Jul 2018 • Couples
A small batch Distillery that specializes in whiskey and outstanding Bloody Marys. The day we visited was the launch day for a new product called "Collaboration" which is a combination of Irish whiskey and their small batch bourbon. My husband said it was very, very tasty. The Bloody Mary is made with their own special mix plus a barbecue sauce. An unexpected but pleasent combination. If you like Bloody Marys, try this one.

Fun afternoon activity with friends.
May 2018 • Friends
A small group of us had drinks and did the distillery tour and tasting on a Saturday afternoon. The tour was informative and not to long. Our tasting was excellent and reonablely priced. Our server was personable and very knowledgeable. They offered some unique and delicious drink options. Their Bourbon Creme is outstanding.

My husband joined the club for Black Button. The club gives you discounts and freebies.Went there today for the first time. Beautiful inside. Very friendly bartenders. My husband did a tasting and I had a cocktail with creme bourbon and ice cream. WOW.
You can book tours of the distillery or just relax with friends and have a drink. They have a few snacks. We'll be going back soon.

They know how to do it right.

I live in the area and went on a Sunday, using a Groupon. I don't drink much hard liquor but really enjoyed the tour, the tour guide and the guests. I loved the Bourbon Cream. I learned so much about Gin and Vodka and Bourbon and the whole process. it made me proud to be a Rochesterian!
