We finished our straight rye whiskey in Extra Aejo Tequila barrels. The result is remarkably unique tequila finished whiskey with notes of agave and vanilla on the nose and honey, peppercorn and orange citrus to taste. Pairing tequila and whiskey is always a risky move, but this was a risk worth the reward.-Distiller Notes
Inspired by Americas original risk-takers and history-makers, our Sagamore Reserve Distillers Select Series celebrates the innovative traditions of Maryland distilling. Unique spring- fed water makes this whiskey authentically Sagamore, while a final finishing process makes each sip complex and distinctive. Distillers Select Tequila Finish is an unconventional collaboration that celebrates the best of both spirits.-Distillery Notes
Sagamore FarmView all from Sagamore Farm
Our spirit flows from a spring house, built in 1909, at Maryland's Sagamore Farm – naturally filtered spring water, fed from a limestone aquifer. The same water that fuels our champion thoroughbreds also cuts the rich spice of our rye, creating a spirit as revolutionary as America's risk-takers and history-makers. Our story is one of passion, of old meeting new, and crafting a timeless American whiskey.
