Sagamore’s signature Rye finished in Tequila casks for a grassy, herbaceous, and spicy delight.

Like nearly all new Spirits companies, for the first few years Sagamore Spirits purchased custom formulated distillate from other production facilities. It’s just about the only way to get started these days. But last year they moved production to their new, private distillery with a very nice visitor center in Baltimore, Maryland. Cheers to them! The name comes from the Sagamore Farm limestone spring water used to cut their Whiskey to proof. They produce a range of seven award-winning, all-American Rye Whiskies and you should try them all because they’re mighty good stuff.

Sagamore makes a really great Rye, but they do like to tinker with the success by experimenting with interesting combinations and finishes. We’ve had several of them this year, including their Cognac and Calvados finished Ryes. And now we get to taste their latest tasty achievement.

Sagamore Distiller's Select Tequila Finish Rye Whiskey is Sagamore’s signature Maryland-style Rye Whiskey powerhouse aged between four and five years in new oak — just as you expect. What sets this dram apart is that it’s finished for up to a year in casks that used to hold Extra Añejo Tequila. It delivers a Rye spice with herbal grassiness and agave nectar notes. And since this limited edition is bottled at 49% ABV, you will drink deeply on the depth of flavor.

The brand is named after a thoroughbred horse racing farm, Sagamore Farm, 22 miles from the Sagamore distillery.
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 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.
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.
A decade ago there were only 6 brands of Rye Whiskey hailing from Kentucky, nowadays there are more than 50!
