Sagamore Rye Whiskey is a Rye-Apple-Rye Whiskey 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 Whiskeys and you should try them all because they’re mighty good stuff.

Sagamore Spirit is known for their Rye Whiskey. They are also known for their experimentation with specialty finishing techniques. Sagamore Spirit Rye Calvados Finish is their signature Rye (a blend of two MGP Spirits) finished in Calvados casks for nearly a year. The interesting thing about this combination is that the Rye spice and Calvados crispness transforms the natural fruit and bread flavors of Rye Whiskey into a cinnamon apple tart profile under the vanilla, oak, anise and toffee notes. It’s a dram of autumn in the Springtime at 50.6% ABV.

Smartass corner:
Calvados is an Eau de Vie made from apples in France. It gets its name from the Calvados region of Normandy that’s famous for producing this Spirit.

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