Black Button Distilling

Black Button Distilling wasn't just born from the brilliant idea to craft homemade booze. It was born from the dirt. Dictated by the available grains, ingredients, and if the glass-bottle crop flourished, the spirits made onsite are distilled largely from locally sourced ingredients, including the corn that makes the unaged moonshine and the soft, white wheat grown on a family-owned farm. During tours, guests see how these raw ingredients are concocted into drinks, and sip samples, which may include the vodka, citrus forward gin, maple syrup that is aged in used bourbon barrels, and 100-proof moonshine. But don't be frightened of that high number—"even though it’s a high proof it’s really smooth," The Edge reviewed.
