Black Button Moonshine
Black Button Distilling // New York, USA
Specializing in "grain to glass" craft spirits, this Rochester, NY company gets their grain from a farm just south of their distillery. Everything is distilled, aged (with the exception of this unaged corn whiskey), bottled, and labeled right in their production room and their corn whiskey is no exception to this attention to craft.
CornMash bill at least 80% corn, no requirement to age, but if aged, must be in either new un-charred oak barrels or used oak barrels.
"Opening with sweet corn, the nose gives way to a pleasant yeasty scent with a touch of vegetation and brine. This spirit is surprisingly smooth for being 100 proof and less sweet than anticipated. With beautiful dry notes that include citrus and aloe, this is a layered libation that the most adamant aged spirit lover might enjoy."
