Our Signature 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.
OUR STORY Sagamore Spirit is driven to craft the world’s best rye whiskey. The legacy of Maryland Rye grounds us, but it’s today’s whiskey lovers across the globe who inspire us. We believe it’s time for a modern approach to American Whiskey, one that prioritizes an impactful grain to glass process, a connection to community, and a determination to create the greatest rye whiskey imaginable. The Spirit of Sagamore lives in our award-winning products and disciplined pursuit of excellence.
Our world-class waterfront distillery is located in Baltimore’s Port Covington neighborhood, directly off I-95 and a short drive from Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. We are open five days a week for whiskey tastings and shopping, and will soon open safely for hour-long guided tours.
