Sagamore Spirit Straight Rye Whiskey (41.5% abv) is a premium spirit bottled in Baltimore, Maryland. The distilling team blends two different mash bills, a high rye and a low rye, and then adds the Sagamore Farm spring-fed water to cut the whiskey to proof.

Packaging by Saxco International, Sagamore is aimed at 18 to 55-year-old men and women.

Sagamore Spirit president Brian Treacy said: “Maryland has a deep history and heritage with distilling rye whiskey that dates back to before Prohibition. Maryland was home to more than 40 distilleries and we honour that tradition by making a spirit worthy of our state’s distilling heritage.”
