October 20, 2020 | 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Every barrel is different. And it’s the blending of bourbon barrels that makes a great whiskey. Get an in-depth look into how we make and age whiskey from the Master Distiller himself, Jason Barret. Taste several single barrels as well as a few of our blends and then measure for yourself the perfect whiskey for your palette. Each student will take home a 375ml bottle of whiskey they have blended!
Founded by owner and head distiller Jason Barrett in June 2012 at only 24 years old, Black Button Distilling tasting room and retail store opened to the public in January 2014, offering spirits tastings, distillery tours, craft cocktails and a unique venue to host public and private events. Every batch of world-class spirits is distilled from local NY grains, bottled, labeled, hand numbered and aged right here in Rochester.
