Our craft distillery specializes in farm to still products where all of our grain is shipped from a local farm just south of our distillery. Unlike some other craft distilleries, we distill, age, bottle, and label all of our products by hand right here in Rochester, New York in our production room. We do not, and never plan on shipping in any spirits from large scale production companies. Our premium New York State Distillery promises to continuously deliver quality spirits that can be responsibly enjoyed by appreciators of fine alcohol.

Gin and juniper go hand in hand like peanut butter and jelly, but who wants to be smacked in the face with a Christmas tree? Black Button Gin has subtle hints of juniper with an orange zest overtone that brings a fresh new twist to this old classic.

Whiskey and cream seem to be such a natural fit together and this, the only farm fresh New York State bourbon cream around, combines our Four Grain Bourbon and local cream for a drink that delights.
Bourbon Cream is similar in concept to an Irish Cream but discloses a richer feel. The bolder vanilla and caramel flavors make this a unique spirit that can be used on its own, in a cup of coffee or in a cocktail. We recommend trying it in a Root Beer Float!

Black Button Wheat Vodka is a suprisingly smooth foundation you can build your drink and your evening on. Black Button Wheat-based Vodka is made from soft white wheat grown on a family farm situated on the western slopes of Conesus Lake. It is this local grain that gives us the smooth taste, body, and feel that every distiller desires for their Vodka, and we are proud to have such desirable grain growing right here in the rich soil of the Finger Lakes Region.
