F.A.T. Episode 7 – Black Button Distilling

Jason with Still Diagram

This week on the Food About Town podcast I talked to Jason Barrett from Black Button Distilling during their massive renovation of the space next to Rohrbach’s Brewery near the Public Market. We discussed the renovation, the plan for their products at launch (citrus forward gin, wheat vodka and moonshine [white whiskey]) and future plans. We also delved into Jason’s past and how he got into craft distilling and some about using local products. Check out their Facebook page and Twitter feed for updates on the construction, labels for their launch products and general info on what’s going on. I love their label style and you should check out one of the feeds to see their stunning old red Ford delivery truck. Big fan of those old timey trucks!


I think we had a really pleasant conversation and if you enjoy it, please subscribe on iTunes and leave a review.


Thanks for tuning in and I’m working on finding a guest for the next episode hopefully for next week. Have a great Labor Day weekend everyone!
