Sagamore Spirit Manhattan Finish Rye Whiskey


750ml, bottle

Sagamore Spirit Manhattan Finish Rye Whiskey stands out as a distinct rye whiskey that undergoes finishing in barrels previously used for vermouth, bitters, and cherry brandy. This results in a rye whiskey with flavors reminiscent of a Manhattan cocktail, including herbaceous notes, sweet cherry, vanilla, and honey.


Sagamore Spirit’s Manhattan Finish Rye Whiskey transcends the boundaries of ordinary rye. Imagine a Manhattan cocktail, its essence bottled and transformed. This rye whiskey undergoes a 20-month finishing process in a unique trio of casks: vermouth, bitters, and cherry brandy. The result? An explosion of flavor that dances on your palate.

Aromatic Symphony

The first encounter is with the alluring aroma. Brace yourself for a wave of herbaceous notes, a signature characteristic of vermouth. Think of fresh thyme, rosemary, and a hint of earthy sage. Woven through this is a delightful sweetness reminiscent of ripe cherries, courtesy of the cherry brandy influence. 

Flavorful Journey

The rye’s inherent spicy character is softened by the herbal undertones and bursts forth with a vibrant cherry sweetness. The vanilla and honey notes emerge, creating a smooth and balanced experience. The influence of the bitters is subtle, adding a hint of complexity and depth that lingers on the finish.

A Touch of Dryness

The finish is where the rye whiskey asserts itself. A touch of dryness emerges, reminding you of the spirit’s base while allowing the other flavors to linger. This balance between sweetness, spice, and dryness is what makes this rye whiskey so captivating.

Sipping or Mixing?

The beauty of Sagamore Spirit Manhattan Finish Rye Whiskey lies in its versatility. Use it to elevate your Manhattan cocktail to new heights. The whiskey’s inherent Manhattan-esque character creates a truly unforgettable drink, eliminating the need for additional ingredients.
