Black Button Citrus Forward Gin
After graduating school and working as a business consultant in Washington, DC, Barrett returned to his hometown of Rochester to follow his passion and, at the age of only 24, open up a craft distillery, which is now the first to exist in Rochester since Prohibition. Fittingly, the distillery is named Black Button Distilling — Barrett is colorblind, and his family used to joke that if he were to take over the family business, they’d have to start producing only black buttons.
Specializing in grain-to-glass spirits, Black Button Distillery produces over 1,350 bottles of world-class spirits each week, and every batch is distilled, aged, bottled, labeled, and hand-numbered at the distillery. "We have a big philosophy here that the closer you are to nature, the better," says Barrett. "Higher quality grains grown in specific ways yield better products."
Black Button Distilling Citrus Forward Gin was crafted to work beautifully as a straight-up gin as well as in cocktails. "I’ve always had gin in gin & tonics and would often ask the bartender for extra lime or lemon wedges to tone down the juniper," Barrett says. "When we began crafting our gin, I started with that toned down juniper note and a strong fruit forward taste." Barrett found that opposed to lemon, zesty orange citrus seemed to work best. In addition, Black Button Distilling Citrus Forward Gin uses local hops in its recipe, offering complexity on the nose without excessive bitterness on the palate.
Black Button Distilling Citrus Forward Gin was called the "Official Gin of Summer" in 2015 by Food and Beverage Magazine.
