Sagamore Spirit teamed up with four distinct content creators to do one thing: create a one-of-a-kind bottle of whiskey together, for their followers (and beyond).
Purposefully bringing together a diverse mix of palates within the world of whiskey, cocktails, beer and beyond was a focus from the very beginning. The process invited four creators (@WhiskyNomad, @TheBrewBrotha, @TheEducatedBarFly, and @ThatOneDudeRyan)
for an exclusive visit to the Sagamore Spirit distillery and farm. They were guided through the history of Maryland rye, the brand’s origin and gathered in Sagamore Spirit’s aging barn for a private tasting and selection.
Turns out, the process wasn’t as easy as one might assume. Finding a blend that appeals to each of the creator’s unique perspectives (and audiences) took thoughtful consideration and – of course – some lively debate (some of which you can find in a YouTube video here).
The result is a unique, Maryland-style blend of seven-year-old straight rye whiskies titled Creator’s Cask, a first of its kind whiskey selected and bottled in collaboration with creators.
As an additional personal touch, each bottle is also hand-signed by one of the four creators, making it an extraordinary gift for the whiskey fan in your life. Creator’s Cask consists of a medium to long finish, with notes of baking spices, cab franc, blackcurrants, dried figs and more. On the palate, you’ll find the good warm notes found in a bourbon, but then dissolve into a nice spice onto the back palate, indicative of American ryes.
To purchase a bottle, buyers simply need to visit Reserve Bar, where it can be shipped nationwide pending restrictions on the site.
