With an interesting mash bill of 60% corn, 20% wheat, 9% rye, and 11% malted barley, this Rochester, NY spirit is made entirely at Black Button's distillery. The grains are even shipped from a farm just to the south of their location, lending true meaning to the term "craft spirit."

Tasting Notes

"At first sniff, one might think you were about to sip a Hot Toddy made with tea instead of a bourbon! The bright nose also includes brown sugar and candied orange peel. On the palate this whiskey starts mild but the flavor creeps in with a wisp of smoke, burnt marshmallows, and black pepper. This spirit insists you don't overlook it or you might miss out!"
