Do you love Gin (like us!) & want to learn from the Masters here at Black Button?
Each class will be given the opportunity to craft their own unique Gin from various botanically infused Gins. A little bit of spice, a little more citrus and a whole 'lotta juniper and you could inspire our next award winning Gin!
There will be snacks to consume while you learn - and taste!
Today, there are only five Gin Warden Rectifiers in the US; two of them are at Rochester's own Black Button Distilling. In order to be inducted, Warden Rectifiers must prove their knowledge of gin and their commitment to the craft of producing and protecting gin and owner Jason Barrett and head distiller Jeff Fairbrother, have done just that!
The Gin Guild was incorporated by the Worshipful Company of Distillers, one of London's traditional livery bodies, by Royal Charter in 1638. The historical role of the Worshipful Company of Distillers was to hold key responsibilities for the control and regulation of early gin distillers. Today, the Gin Guild is a spirits industry body, charged with protecting the gin trade and culture around the world. The Gin Guild promotes and encourages commitment to excellence in gin distillation and industry custodianship of the spirit category. Brand owners and producers are eligible to join in the corporate rank of Warden Rectifier
Each participant will take home a 375ml bottle of Gin you have blended yourself!
Seating is limited to 12 per class!
