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.
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.
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.
