Black Button 20-Plate Vodka
Black Button Distilling // New York, USA
Black Button, based in Rochester, New York makes this vodka from soft white wheat grown nearby on the slopes of Conesus Lake. The 20 plate vodka is made in a hybrid still and will replace their regular wheat vodka which was the first product the distillery released.
Unflavored VodkaDistilled from any agricultural product, most commonly grains or potatoes. Typically distilled to 95% ABV. Water is added to bring the spirit down to as low as 37.5% ABV in the EU and 40% ABV in the US. It is usually filtered, often with charcoal, prior to bottling. It is almost always clear and unaged.
"This smells a bit like the early stages of fermentation. Lots of wet grain and even a smell of basic wort. The palate is fairly hot and full of chewy minerals. It brightens up a bit with a lasting finish of vanilla."
