Sagamore Spirit Rye is Sagamore Spirit’s base-level rye whiskey that’s for now is contract distilled by MGP in Indiana (hence why the back label mentions that it was distilled in Indiana). I say base-level because the product line expands from this Signature Rye to a number of higher proof wine, brandy, and beer finishes, double oak, single barrel selects, and cask strength ryes. If you like rye, Sagamore Spirit probably has something for you.
As a refresher, Sagamore Spirit is a Baltimore-based distillery that specializes in rye whiskey. They are in the process of distilling and aging their own rye, which I believe is about 3-4 years old now and has only been periodically sold at the distillery. For now, let’s learn about the original contract distilled release you’ll find on the shelves in this Sagamore Spirit Rye review.
Thank you to Sagamore Spirit for kindly sending me this bottle. All opinions are still my own.
