Spice, a hint of corn, a little fruit—that’s what gives Maryland whiskeys their bold reputation. We’ve selected Sagamore’s bestsellers, all scoring 95 points from beverage industry heavy hitter The Tasting Panel.
You cannot enjoy a classic Manhattan, Old Fashioned, or Sazerac without a rye whiskey. Dilute this spiced liquor with ginger ale or club soda or enjoy it on the rocks for a quiet evening drink.
Looking for a bite to go with your drink? Rich, fatty dishes like broiled salmon or a saucy barbecue are your best dinnertime bets. This is a drink that favors the stronger-tasting cheeses like a traditional Roquefort or the pungent Époisses. If chocolate’s your late-night treat of choice, the taste of rye blends perfectly with milk chocolate—especially if it has a hint of ginger or chili!
Sagamore embodies the heart and soul of the American whiskey experience. Based in the mid-Atlantic region of the country, their operation does not have a single Master Distiller. It’s an intentional choice, giving voice to every idea, innovation, and palate in their quest for different blends of whiskey. They work with rye farms, stave mills, and cooperages in the region to get the best grain and the best American charred oak barrels for their liquor.
Store your bottle upright in a cool, dark place, ideally between 15 and 20°C. Do not refrigerate, as this liquor loses its aroma and flavor with cold. To maintain the moistness of the cork and prevent it from chipping, occasionally tilt your bottle horizontally two to three times, then restore it to the upright position. Unopened bottles can last for an indefinite amount of time, but the closer you get to the bottom third of the bottle, please consume quickly to prevent oxidation and taste alteration.
