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.
