All about Sagamore Spirit

Sagamore Spirit is an award-winning waterfront distillery with one goal: to put Maryland back on the Whiskey-making map. Their incredible distillery has become a destination with thousands of visitors every year.

Sagamore produces a range of four all American Rye Whiskeys. Historically, Maryland Rye Whiskey is a much smoother Whiskey than its Pennsylvanian and Kentucky counterparts, harboring creamy tastes and textures from the calcium rich waters of Maryland limestone.

Sagamore Rye is meticulously crafted. Each batch painstakingly analyzed for consistency in aroma, flavor, and texture. They handcraft their Whiskey’s from two distinct mashes of rye, corn and malted barley, giving their spirits a signature bold flavor profile.

All about Sagamore Spirit distillery

In the early 1800s, Maryland farmers treasured rye for its fibrous and sturdy nature, which kept soil healthy and protected the land from erosion. It also made a great quality Whiskey.

Sagamore Spirit celebrates the history of Maryland’s great distillers and is committed to inspiring a global passion for Maryland Rye whiskey.
Sagamore is unique in both its mash bill and proofing process. Each spirit is a blend of two different mash bills  – a high rye and a low rye – and then proofed with spring-fed water from the Sagamore Farm Spring House.
Fed from a limestone aquifer, this pure and naturally filtered water is crisp and calcium-rich – perfect for making Maryland-Style Rye whiskey.

The 22,000-square-foot distillery boasts nine 6,500-gallon fermenters, an 8,000-gallon Beer well, a 6,000-gallon mash cooker as well as a 24-inch column still from Vendome and a 250-gallon pot still.
