Black Button Four Grain Straight Bourbon
Black Button Four Grain Straight Bourbon is a small-batch spirit made with 100 percent New York state grown grains including 60 percent corn, 20 percent wheat, 9 percent rye, and 11 percent malted barley. With a big aroma of fresh oak, toffee, and leather along with light caramel and vanilla flavors and a clean finish, this is the product that captured Black Button founder's heart and the reason he's dedicated to craft distilling. The Four Grain Straight Bourbon has won numerous awards including a 2020 John Barley Corn Gold Medal. It is available in 750mL for a suggested retail price of $59.99.
Bespoke Bourbon Cream
Whiskey and cream naturally go so well together, and this delicious spirit combines hand finished Black Button Bourbon and local farm fresh New York State cream for a drink that delights. Bespoke Bourbon Cream is similar in concept to that of an Irish Cream but has a more complex flavor profile. The bourbon base creates that rich feel with a sweet vanilla and smooth caramel taste. The Bespoke Bourbon Cream has won numerous awards including a Gold Medal at the 2020 Concours International de Lyon competition. It is available in 750mL for a suggested retail price of $34.99.
Citrus Forward Gin
Sweet and bitter orange peel and New York State Cascade hops give the Citrus Forward Gin a bold fruit flavor. Black Button's founder, Jason Barrett, discovered the rich and juicy orange is a perfect match for the delicate notes of juniper. The unique blend of botanicals takes you on a journey from full citrus notes, to a hint of spice, and ends with clean Juniper. The Citrus Forward Gin has won numerous awards including a Gold Medal at the Great American International Spirits Competition. It is available in 750mL for a suggested retail price of $34.99.
