| August 16, 2021 | 0 Comments

Port Covington rye whiskey distillery Sagamore Spirit has launched new canned cocktails. The cocktails will be available in four-packs and sold at liquor stores in Maryland, New Jersey, and Washington, DC.

The three carbonated cocktail recipes were created in partnership with CAnE Collective, a Baltimore-based maker of handcrafted mixers. The canned cocktails are gluten-free and made with organic juices.

The cocktails are:

  • Black-Eyed Rye: Sagamore Spirit Rye Whiskey paired with blackberry juice, lime juice, and natural ginger flavor (9% ABV)
  • Honey Paloma: Sagamore Spirit Rye Whiskey paired with red grapefruit juice, lime juice, agave, and natural honey flavor (9% ABV)
  • Lemon Tea Fizz: Sagamore Spirit Rye Whiskey paired with Meyer lemon juice, green tea, and natural yuzu flavor (8% ABV)

The suggested retail price for the four-packs is $15.99. The four-packs will be available throughout the country next year.

“Maryland-style rye is the perfect base for cocktails, and we thought it was time to show that you can create a premium canned cocktail with our four-year-old rye whiskey, meant to be enjoyed anytime, anywhere,” said Brian Treacy, president of Sagamore Spirit, in a press release. “What makes these recipes so special is the consideration that went into creating them. In the crowded ready-to-drink space, these stand apart because of the time we took to design each cocktail from scratch with the talented mixologists from CAnE Collective, resulting in a product that is layered with flavor and our award-winning rye whiskey in every sip.”
