If you're anything like me, you could care nothing about Black Friday and whatever time Walmart, Target, and Best Buy are opening up (pretty much standard on Thanksgiving evening now). Whatever happened to digesting Thanksgiving dinner and just enjoying the Holiday with loved ones?

Not to worry, Jason Barrett and Black Button Distilling promise to make this year's Black Friday a day worth going out for - without infringing on your actual Thanksgiving Holiday.
On Friday, November 28th, Black Button Distilling will be releasing the first locally made-craft bourbon to hit the market in Monroe County since Prohibition. They are calling this Little Barrel Bourbon, a limited 1,400 bottle production that has aged four months in 5-gallon barrels.
"It is the same recipe going into the barrel as the big barrel Bourbon that will be released next year, giving craft bourbon fans an opportunity to taste what’s coming at Black Button Distilling.
'The time in-barrel and size of barrel have a dramatic effect on the flavor of the bourbon. It’s a much younger, corn flavor, than a traditional bourbon, but it’s very smooth for its age,' said Jason Barrett , Black ButtonDistilling President/Head Distiller.
The one-time limited release of 1,400 375 ml bottles will sell for $39.99 per bottle, with a limit of one case purchase per person. Little Barrel Bourbon will be available in the Black Button Distilling Rochester, NY tasting room over Black Friday weekend and will be available in all the finest local liquor stores beginning December 1st."
And the time to show up at Black Button Distilling on Black Friday? Certainly not in the AM….opening doors are at 3pm on Black Friday, so there's no need to get up at the crack of dawn to get your first taste of this historic bourbon.
- FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 28TH 3-9 P.M.
- SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 29TH 9-5 P.M.
- SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 30TH NOON-4 P.M
Jason is co-Founder and Editor of the Rochesteriat. Even if you're not a fan of bourbon, he thinks you should check out the new Apple Pie Moonshine at Black Button Distilling. This just may become a favorite of his for the holidays! Check out more @JaySchwingle or Facebook.
