At Sagamore Spirit, we are driven to craft the world's best rye whiskey, while strengthening our collective communities.

This includes building partnerships with the Maryland agricultural community and working with local farmers to grow and harvest grain.

These relationships further our goal of using Maryland-grown rye in our products and helps local farmers expand their business.

Sagamore Spirit Rye Whiskey

Sagamore Spirit Rye Whiskey is a blend of two straight rye mash bills, aged 4 to 6 years in high-char American oak barrels.

The first is a high-rye, which adds notes of cinnamon and clove, and the second, a low-rye, contributes notes of caramel, honey, and citrus peel.

The final spirit is proofed with limestone-filtered water from our spring house built in 1909 and represents our team’s thoughtful approach to crafting a classic Maryland-style rye whiskey.

Tasting Notes:

  • Palate: Traditional Maryland-Style Rye Whiskey. Candied dried orange peel with notes of clove and nutmeg. Lingering hints of walnut and brown sugar to finish.
  • Proof: 83 (41.5% ABV)
  • Age: 4-6 years

Cask Strength Rye Whiskey

Our Cask Strength Rye Whiskey is a blend of straight high-rye and low-rye mash bills aged 4 to 7 years.

The 7-year-old contributes deeper chocolate, hazelnut, and molasses characteristics and the 4-year-old adds bright citrus notes and balanced spice.

After our distillers select and blend these straight rye whiskies, they add just a touch of limestone-filtered water from our spring house built in 1909.

Cask Strength is complex and perfectly layered, showcasing the transformational art of blending.

Tasting Notes:

  • Palate: Smooth dark chocolate paired with intense notes of black pepper and brown sugar. A light hit of honey for balance.
  • Proof: 112.2 (56.1% ABV)
  • Age: 4-7 years

Double Oak Rye Whiskey

After aging our straight rye whiskey for 4 to 5 years in high-char new American oak barrels, our distillers transfer the aged whiskey into toasted wave stave barrels for an additional 18 months.

The increased surface area of the low-char, medium-plus-toast staves imparts Double Oak’s delightful caramel, toffee, hazelnut, and toasted coconut.

Our classic Maryland-style rye whiskey is reimagined through this innovative aging process and then proofed with limestone-filtered water from our spring house built in 1909.

The final spirit is a shining example of old meeting new.

Tasting Notes:

  • Palate: Smooth caramel and rich toasted coconut. Nutty flavors of hazelnut and pecan meld perfectly with vanilla and caramel.
  • Proof: 96.6 (48.3% ABV)
  • Age: 4-5 years
