Sagamore Spirit is on a mission: putting Maryland back on the Whiskey map.

When award-winning Sagamore Spirit opened its waterfront distillery’s doors and fired up its copper stills, it had two things in mind: turn out rye that would put Maryland back on the whiskey-making map, and create a destination to delight and educate spirits lovers from near and far. One year, two million pounds of milled grain, and 30,000 visitors later, the plan is well ahead of schedule.

Sagamore Straight Rye was rated 95/100 in The Tasting Panel Magazine, 2017, "an exquisite nose of peach and jasmine with additional tones of spiced apricot nectar, caramel cream, tobacco leaf and orange rind present in taste as well… "

The taste harkens back to the 19th century, when Maryland farmers discovered the benefits of distilling whiskey from the distinctive grain — perfect neat or in their signature Black-Eyed Rye Cocktail.


Smartass Corner:
The water that comes straight up from a limestone spring at the farm reportedly fuels the local race horses that are said to be winners.

A decade ago there were only 6 brands of Rye Whiskey hailing from Kentucky, nowadays there are more than 50!
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.
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.
