Sagamore Spirit Launches Small Batch Rye Whiskey

Baltimore-based Sagamore Spirit proudly unveils its latest release: Sagamore Small Batch Rye Whiskey. Since its inception in 2017, Sagamore Spirit has been determined to create a whiskey that embodies the rich legacy of Maryland Rye, and almost a decade later, the Sagamore Small Batch is the epitome of that vision. This major milestone marks Sagamore Spirit’s commitment to honoring tradition while pushing the boundaries of flavor and quality. 

Sagamore Small Batch is made from 100% Maryland-distilled rye whiskey, using grains sourced through Sagamore Spirits’ Farm-to-Table process. The expression is a blend of the brand’s innovative triple distilled high rye and low rye mash bills. It then matures for four to six years, before being blended into small 20-barrel batches. The result is a robust 93-proof (46.5% alc./vol.) expression that achieves a smooth yet complex flavor profile.

Sagamore meticulously blends two straight whiskeys for complexity, while the triple distillation process enhances its smoothness. The palate brings traditional baking spices that intertwine with the sweetness of golden apples, and layers of caramel, honey, and brown sugar through a mild oak and balanced fruit finish. The rich blend leaves a warm spice and vanilla combination on the nose. 

“Sagamore Small Batch Rye Whiskey is our first 100% Maryland-made whiskey that is available worldwide, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to share it with whiskey lovers across the globe,” says Ryan Norwood, VP of Operations at Sagamore Spirit. “We are proud to unveil the first expression of many made entirely at our distillery while honoring Maryland’s rich whiskey heritage.” 

Crafted solely from 100% Maryland-distilled whiskey, Sagamore Small Batch reflects the state’s long-standing tradition of local craftsmanship and excellence. Sagamore Spirit is dedicated to connecting with the local farming community and sourcing high-quality grains. The whiskey blend used to make Sagamore Small Batch is made with 100% non-GMO grains. The latest launch epitomizes Sagamore’s commitment to its Farm-to-Table process.  

Sagamore Small Batch Rye Whiskey is now available at select retailers for $39.99. For more information about Sagamore Spirit and its exceptional range of rye whiskeys, including the latest release, visit or on Instagram (@sagamorespirit). Savor our spirit responsibly.
