  • Went with a group of friends enjoyed the tour and the entrepreneur ship.... Fun to see dreams come true!! Well done! Enjoyed our sampling also! 
  • We first sampled Black Button's products at Heron Hill winery on Keuka Lake, and we were hooked! They use high quality ingredients and try to keep them local, and you can tell when you sip it. We visi...  read more »

  • Excellent local distillery, owes it's large success to it's great drinks. Large tasting room with viewing window to see the distilling process with tours offered. Great time for a group of friends, then go to their neighbors who are a local brewery. Fun times, great drinks.
  • We went there for the first time on Friday for their lilac gin release. I never actually knew that this area existed by the public market, but it's great! Though the place itself is small, it's got a really comfortable vibe and I wasn't overwhelmed by the massive amounts of people (The event was popular, and for good reason. The gin is awesome). I definitely plan on going back on a regular day when the crowds will be thinner to give a tasting a try.
  • I loved this place from the moment I opened the door. For one it smelled delicious, two it was beautiful inside with lots of goodies to check out. I loved the cocktail I chose as did my fiancĂ©, both very different ingredients and equally tasty. We went on a tour of the facility and let's just say I'll do it again! Highly recommend this unique distillery!
  • The bad news first: This place wasn't what I expected. I kind of thought it would be more mellow and upscale. The vibe, however, wasn't like that at all. Loud indy-alternative music blasts from the radio and the crowd, when we were there, was young and rowdy. That could be because a craft brewery is right next door and I'm sure there is a spillover effect. The tasting room wasn't much different than a bar. And the service was poor. The tour started haphazardly, with no warning and without us. The good news is that the manager was very apologetic and insisted on doing what she could to make things good. We finally had a tasting, and that was OK. They have a couple of tasty spirits, and we did buy a bottle of gin.
  • Great little tasting room with some amazing options. The apple pie moonshine is incredible as is their gin. Only $5 for a tasting, the servers are all very knowledgeable and answer any questions you have.
