Overview

We are Rochester NY's first and finest craft distillery since prohibition. Located at the Rochester Public Market making only the finest Vodka, Gin and Whiskey from New York State grains. Since 1922 my family has provided some of the finest men's suit buttons available. For Four generations these buttons have closed suits worn by Presidents, Popes, Kings, and Businessmen the world over. From a young age I went to work in my grandfather's factory but it was clear I was meant for a different path. I broke tradition and decided to make whiskey, but the lessons I learned in his factory as a kid still guide me to this day; work hard, work with your hands, make your product the best on the market, and you can't cheat time. My distillery pays homage to my grandfather and the world he knew - where real men worked hard and drank real pot distilled whiskey. My name is Jason Barrett, I started my craft distillery at 24 years old, and I love distilling. I hope you will try our small batch, grain to glass spirits and join me in raising a glass to Living Large in Small Batches.

So, I'm not a big fan of spirits,so I can't say I'm an expert at judging spirits, but I love supporting small businesses. Saw this company on Groupon, and figured for a deal it's worth a shot, and I'm glad I took that shot. Thus,...More
