    Sagamore Distillery
    Sagamore Distillery tour was amazing! Wether you’re from out of town or a native Baltimorean, this tour is fun! Come learn about Maryland’s rich Rye history and the history of Sagamore! I loved tasting the variety of Rye whiskey and learning how those notes were achieved! We can’t wait to come back for Whiskey on the Water and other summer fun!

    Sagamore for the win...
    A fantastic experience in every way. Jake, our tour guide, did a great job of weaving together a well-balanced story about the distilling process, the history of Sagamore, and the connection of Baltimore to Rye Whiskey. The tasting was exceptionally done. Be sure to leave enough time to visit the retail space and grab a cocktail at 1909.

    50th birthday bash
    We celebrated my husband's 50th birthday by taking our family and friends on their distillery tour and a great time was had by all! The tour was limited to 24 people, who had a blast! And the rest of us (myself and husband had previously toured) where thoroughly entertained by hanging out at their wonderful bar and beautiful waterfront property!

    Great addition to Baltimore!
    We took a tour this past Sunday of Sagamore Distillery. Tour was informative and great info on the history of Rye in Maryland. Our tour guide Georgina was excellent! Tasting was fun and my favorite pairing was Rye with dark chocolate! A great activity to get out of the heat in August.

    A must see for the rye enthusiast!
    If you are going to be in the Baltimore area and you like rye, you must schedule a tour of the distillery. The guide, Kayla, was very knowledgeable and you got to see first hand their process. At the end of the tour, you get tasting samples, which are great!!

    AWESOME!!!
    You must go for a tour even if you are not a big whiskey fan. My husband is so I went for him and I had a great time. Keyah our tour guide was the absolute best :-) her knowledge of the whiskey making process was incredible.

    Discover rye whiskey throughout this unique tour and tasting experience!
    Our tour guide, Jake, was passionate about whiskey and the Sagamore process. He encouraged questions, and we had many, and he answered all knowledgeably. Several in our party had traveled the bourbon trail in Kentucky and Jake was able to discuss the differences and distinctions between Sagamore and the many other distillers. Most in our party are Maryland locals and we learned much about the local Baltimore history as it relates agriculture, distilling and the economy. The bartenders crafted specialty cocktails made with ingredients that are all made on site. All staff were pleasant and attentive. Several in our party purchased engraved bottles as special gifts for family and friends. Truly a unique tour and tasting experience!

    Great location, excellent whiskey
    The distillery is a little hard to get to but well worth the effort. Great location on the water and a nice building. The tour was excellent (thanks, Jake!) and the tasting room and bar were really well designed. The whiskey is excellent. Just need to add some food.

    Fantastic Distillery Tour!
    If you like to see how things are made, then you must go on this tour. It is so interesting, but the operation isn't huge, so you really get up close to the workings of a distillery. Our tour guide, Christine, was fantastic and really made the tour special. At the end, you get to sample four different types of rye, and you get a rye-infused chocolate truffle. We learned so much and had a wonderful time. And the view of the water is lovely. The restaurant next door, The Rye Street Tavern, will be reopening in the spring, and it makes a good complement to the tour. Oh, and the gift shop has really cool merchandise, from bottles of rye to rye-scented candles. Lots to choose from.

    Non-Whiskey Drinker Won Over
    We had a great time at Sagamore Distillery. I’m usually not a whiskey drinker but we attended the class in celebration of my husband’s birthday. We left with two new drink recipes and two bottles. And, we’re already planning our next trip. Thanks to Mike for being a wonderful instructor!

Get a reservation and go to this awesome newer distillery on the Baltimore waterfront. We went on the tour which was just the right length. Afterward we prowled their very nice store and found some goodies to bring home. Luckily the weather was superior so we got to sit Harborside with our cocktails from one of their many outside bars and listen to the musicians they had playing folk music. It is a great vibe. The best part is, Sagamore Spirit is some really good whiskey! And it’s getting easier to find as time passes. I’d go back again just to sit outside and take in the atmosphere. Such fun.

We had a great visit to the Sagamore Distillery! Learning Baltimore’s history of rye whisky production was fascinating. Our guide, Kenneth, was very knowledgeable and engaging. It’s exciting that Sagamore’s vision is to reestablish Baltimore as a premier distiller of rye whiskey. The tasting of each of the whiskeys was a perfect ending to the Sagamore tour.

My husband and 4 friends of ours attended the cocktail class. The presenters were great but we felt for $25 we'd get more than two cocktails. Maybe a glass to take with us or some food samples or snacks during the class, which started at 6:30 PM. We wanted to get apps ahead at the RYE St. Tavern restaurant but for some reason it's been closed since the start of the pandemic. We think this is an opportunity lost.
Regarding the class, the 3oz of low end Sagamore Rye and the mixers of simple syrup, orange peels and bitters was probably not more than a few dollars. I suggest that future classes include a swag or snacks to make the $25 per person more appealing.

The sunset cruise was awesome! First you get a tasting of a bunch of Sagamore offerings. Then you are provided a Sagamore drink for the boat ride - you get to see the City skyline in the sunset. Everyone is so nice and it was a great time... and a great value!

We took a distillery tour on 10/22 at 17:00 and the woman who lead the tour (I did not catch her name) did a great job! It was fun, informative, and we had a wonderful time! It was interesting to see the equipment and learn about the process of making the rye whiskey. I have a new appreciation for the alcohol now! The whiskey itself is strong but full of flavor. I definitely recommend experiencing this place if you’re visiting or living in Baltimore (you don’t have to like whiskey to enjoy the tour)!

The cocktail class is well-organized and social distancing is maintained throughout. All the ingredients are high quality and Justin walked us through some of the history of rye whiskey in Maryland as well as through crafting the cocktails. We had an excellent time. I would highly recommend a visit to Sagamore.

I booked a tour of Sagamore Distillery on a lark, when I thought it was going to the 2 of us for the weekend…celebrating our 26th wedding anniversary. Well, plans are always fluid in our house, and our 19yo son ended up joining us for Saturday’s plans. We arrived a few minutes before our 12noon tour, checked in, and were invited to browse the gift shop or visit the bar. Our guide, Christine, arrived exactly at 12! We were with a group of 2 other couples & then hubs/19yo son/me. Christine was so knowledgeable about the whiskey distilling process…there wasn’t a question she didn’t know the answer to…or she faked so well she fooled us all! 😉. Seriously, at the end of the tour, we were taken to a tasting room (sorry, the 19yo got water & he got to sniff the tasters). She taught us how to “sniff”, swirl it in our mouths and “retrograde sniff”. I’m not a whiskey drinker, but I really enjoyed tasting all 5 samples and learning about them. I would definitely recommend a visit here. It truly gave me a new appreciation for the skill involved in distilling spirits…and a new job goal for our 19yo chemistry major! 😆

I attended the $10 tasting with my husband and two adult sons. The tasting was a great value, informative and the chocolate truffle was so good with the tasting! Unfortunately the tours of the distillery nor the tavern have reopened yet but that gives us a reason to come back. There was a food truck in the parking lot and they had a bar area to order extra drinks after the tasting with a nice deck area to sit and watch the water.

I’d highly recommend if your looking for something fun for a few hours for over 21 crowd.

We attended a Whiskey Happy Hour and mini tour. Christine was the best tour I’ve experienced in a long time from numerous tours I’ve attended. If you let her go, you are crazy. Her excitement about every aspect of the Sagamore was a joy. She was funny and knowledgeable without being corny. When I do a tour again, I have to have Christine.
As always, Justin was on point with his drinks and always a pleasure capturing additional Sagamore knowledge from. One of the Sagamore reps, Tim, was there and gave us a wealth of not only Sagamore knowledge but industry knowledge which was so cool for him to take the time.
Sagamore tour and cocktail lounge is a must if you visit Baltimore.
