Paying homage to the three-year-old distillery’s copper still that nurtured the whiskey—nicknamed Penny—and which inspired the limited offerings name: Penny’s Proof, Baltimore’s Sagamore Spirit sold whiskey for a penny per 250ml bottle.

Hundreds of people lined up outside the Baltimore distillery to get a first taste of the brand’s first whiskey distilled and aged locally. In what may be the most limited-ever of limited releases, the brand invited its most ardent fans to get a first taste—with over 500 of them showing up.
