Two casks, one excellent Maryland Whiskey.
 
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.
 
The Double Oak Rye Whiskey is an award-winning Spirit that went through two barrels. Its journey started at MGP in Indiana and spent four years in American oak barrels before it was put in new charred wave stave barrels for an additional six months. The idea behind the said fancy barrels is that their staves have tiny grooves that increase the surface area that can interact with the Spirit. The result are subtly toasted oak flavors with notes of vanilla and caramel. It's a fantastic limited-edition Rye Whiskey that makes us wonder why exactly the Maryland style nearly vanished.

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.
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.
