In the early 1800s, Maryland farmers were known to use rye as a cover crop. Its fibrous and sturdy nature kept soil healthy, protecting the land from erosion, not to mention it made a great quality whiskey. Rye whiskey production also proved to be more profitable than selling the raw grain. After the spring harvest, the grains were distilled, and rye whiskey became the unofficial spirit of Maryland.

Sagamore Spirit produces a range of all American Rye Whiskeys and is reminiscent of those early days of Maryland distilling, paying homage to this era with a uniquely crafted spirit. Maryland rye whiskeys have historically been smoother than its Pennsylvanian and Kentucky counterparts, harboring creamy tastes and textures from the calcium-rich waters of Maryland limestone. In their early stages, the majority of production went into blends for other companies; they currently own their private distillery outfitted with a brand new visitor center in Maryland.

Their Reserve Series celebrates risk-taking and the innovation of Maryland distilling. The Distiller's Select Manhattan Finish is their straight rye whiskey that gets finished in vermouth, bitters, and cherry brandy barrels. This unconventional experiment results in a unique Manhattan-finished whiskey. It's complex and different, a successful clash of two worlds. Aged 4 to 5 years and bottled at 103 proof, it upgrades the signature rye profile with cherry and herbaceous notes, making it wholly unique. The whiskey invokes the spirit of the famous cocktail and has garnered several awards.
