Baltimore-based Sagamore Spirit recently introduced its first-ever line of ready-to-drink canned craft cocktails in three flavors: Black-Eyed Rye, Honey Paloma and Lemon Tea Fizz. Featuring Sagamore Spirit’s 4-year-old, award-winning straight rye whiskey, each was developed to showcase the best of Maryland-style rye—approachable, versatile, yet full bodied—and let natural ingredients in classic cocktail combinations shine through.
The three refreshingly carbonated cocktail recipes were inspired by Baltimore’s most creative mixology minds and created in partnership with CAnE Collective—the renowned, Baltimore-based maker of handcrafted mixers.
Made with organic juices and naturally gluten-free, Sagamore Spirit’s rye whiskey canned craft cocktails are ready for any occasion:
· Black-Eyed Rye: Sagamore Spirit Rye Whiskey paired with blackberry juice, lime juice, and natural ginger flavor; 9% ABV
· Honey Paloma: Sagamore Spirit Rye Whiskey paired with red grapefruit juice, lime juice, agave, and natural honey flavor; 9% ABV
· Lemon Tea Fizz: Sagamore Spirit Rye Whiskey paired with Meyer lemon juice, green tea, and natural yuzu flavor; 8% ABV
“Maryland-style rye is the perfect base for cocktails, and we thought it was time to show that you can create a premium canned cocktail with our four-year-old rye whiskey, meant to be enjoyed anytime, anywhere,” said Brian Treacy, Sagamore Spirit president, in a press release. “What makes these recipes so special is the consideration that went into creating them. In the crowded ready-to-drink space, these stand apart because of the time we took to design each cocktail from scratch with the talented mixologists from CAnE Collective, resulting in a product that is layered with flavor and our award-winning rye whiskey in every sip.”
Sagamore Spirit canned craft cocktails will initially be available throughout Maryland, Washington D.C. and New Jersey before becoming available nationwide next year. Each cocktail will be sold in a four-pack at an SRP of $15.99, beginning in August 2021.
