The team at Sagamore Spirit has launched into the premium canned cocktail category with three premium options all made using a base of their 4-year-old rye whiskey.

Made using approachable, full bodied, and vibrant ingredients, all three cocktails showcase the four-year-old Rye to the fullest.

Sagamore Spirit developed the line in partnership with CAnE Collective, a consulting agency operating out of the Baltimore/Washington DC area. The CAnE Collective started as an initiative founded by hospitality workers Clinton Jackson Alexander, Ezra Allen, and Chilled 100 Member Aaron Joseph to educate the public about rum and cane spirits. Since then, the team has worked on more general spirits education and have developed their own range of craft mixers. The Collective’s background in education, hospitality, product development combined with their Baltimore location made them the ideal partners when Sagamore began looking into canned cocktails.

Sagamore Spirit RTD Canned Cocktails

“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.”
– Brian Treacy, Sagamore Spirit president

“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.”

Each cocktail is gluten free and made with organic juices. Get to know the three flavors:


Honey Paloma

Red grapefruit juice is paired with lime juice, agave, and natural honey flavor for this refreshing take on a paloma. The 9%ABV gives it just enough buzz to blend the true rye flavor and easy drinking.

Black-Eyed Rye

Perfect for fall, the Black-Eyed Rye is a flavorful blend of Rye, blackberry juice, lime juice, and natural ginger flavor.

Lemon Tea Fizz

Green tea, Meyer lemon juice, and natural yuzu flavor come together with rye whiskey for an easy-to-drink cocktail with an 8% ABV.
