GSN Review: Black Button Loganberry Gin

Black Button Distilling, located in Rochester, New York is the state’s first grain-to-glass craft distillery to open since prohibition. Founded in 2012 by Jason Barrett, Black Button is a New York State licensed Farm Distillery and uses over 90% NYS all-natural ingredients to make all their spirits. Every batch is distilled from local grains sourced from Edgewood Farms, located just south of Conesus Lake in the beautiful Finger Lakes Region.

Black Button’s Loganberry Gin is made with traditional botanicals including Lemon Peel and Juniper, with the added sweet notes of Loganberries.

NOTE: The entire batch sold out in a matter of a few days. Make sure you sign up for their mailing list to be notified when the next batch is available.

Black Button Loganberry Gin (84 proof)
Visual: Clear.
Nose: Berry fruit nose, but strongly supported by juniper. Dry, crisp and not at all artificial or cloying.
Taste: Like Black Button’s Lilac Gin, this is a stand out in the gin category. The fruit never overpowers, but adds a layer of intrigue, slight sweetness and summery appeal.
Finish: The loganberry just goes on and on, well after you assume it would dissipate. It’s not overwhelming in the least, just fruity and appealing.
Overall: Having family in Western New York, I know the flavor of loganberry quite well. It’s a thing out there. This is a brilliant and altogether novel take on an American style gin, and it works incredibly well. If a gin can bring you back to your childhood, this is the one to do it.
GSN Rating: A+
