Sagamore Spirit, a Baltimore distillery owned by Under Armor founder Kevin Plank, has released a debut range of spirits-based RTDs in the US.

The line-up comprises Black-Eyed Rye, Honey Paloma and Lemon Tea Fizz, with each variant using Sagamore’s Maryland rye whiskey as its base. The range was created in partnership with CAnE Collective, a Baltimore-based beverage consultancy and non-alcoholic mixer producer.

  • Black-Eyed Rye – Rye whiskey paired with blackberry juice, lime juice and ginger flavour (9% abv)

“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 company president Brian Treacy.

Sagamore Spirit is part of Plank’s privately-owned Plank Industries.
