Sagamore Spirit finished their Straight Rye Whiskey in vermouth, bitters, and cherry brandy barrels to create a unique Manhattan Finished Rye Whiskey. Herbaceous undertones and fresh cherry sweetness make this an incredible whiskey to mix into its namesake, or savour on its own.
Inspired by AmericaÕs original risk-takers and history-makers, our Sagamore Reserve DistillerÕs Select Series celebrates the innovative traditions of Maryland distilling. We deconstructed the flavors of a Manhattan cocktail by finishing our whiskey in separate 53-gallon cherry brandy, vermouth, and bitters barrels. This final whiskey blend highlights the fresh cherry sweetness, herbaceous vermouth, and botanical spice of the classic cocktail.
