The wonderful American-Portugal connection.
 
When Sagamore Spirit opened its distillery on the bank of Patapsco River in Baltimore in 2017, they had a clear mission: put Maryland back on the Whiskey-making map by reviving the "Maryland-style" Whiskey that almost disappeared after the repeal of Prohibition. They're proofing their Whiskeys with limestone-filtered water from their farm, which reportedly fuels local racehorses who are born winners.
 
With their Port Finish Rye Whiskey, they've created a sumptuous story that starts with a blend of the best Straight Ryes and ends with a vinaceous twist: a finish in Port wine casks from Portugal and Maryland. The result is a full and complex flavor profile with fruity notes of plum and cherry. It's like a wonderful crossover episode of your favorite Baltimore TV show and a hit series from Portugal. Also, it's officially the World's best Rye Whiskey according to the 2019 San Francisco World Spirit Competition. Enhance your evenings with a neat one or pour it in a Manhattan cocktail.

A decade ago there were only 6 brands of Rye Whiskey hailing from Kentucky, nowadays there are more than 50!
Rye sparked the first revolution after the American Independence. It was called the Whiskey Rebellion, and it arose when the government tried to tax Whiskey and enforce the taxation on distillers. The lesson here? Don't mess with a Whiskey drinker's dram.
George Washington famously loved his Rye Whiskey. In fact, after he served as the first president of the United States, he returned to his farm at Mount Vernon and started a small Rye distillery of his own.
Rye - think of it as Bourbon's edgier cousin. It’s known for what many call a spicy or fruity flavor. Rye (distilled from at least 51% Rye) is not on the sweet side and tends to have a spicier body. That’s why the character of a cocktail made from Rye, instead of Bourbon, is drier.
The brand is named after a thoroughbred horse racing farm, Sagamore Farm, 22 miles from the Sagamore distillery.
