Sagamore Spirit announced today that it is donating the proceeds from its limited release of rye whiskey to Ellicott City Partnership’s flood relief and rebuilding efforts, according to a press news release.
The Port Covington-based company, founded by Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank, decided to donate the proceeds from its entire supply of Cognac Finish Whiskey — an estimated 1,000 bottles — after Ellicott City was devastated in a flash flood in late May.
“We want our friends and neighbors in Ellicott City to know that we stand with them,” said Brian Treacy, president of Sagamore Spirit, in a statement. “We’ve witnessed their strength and perseverance firsthand, and wanted to help the best way we know how, and help build the future that everyone who lives and works there deserves.”
The 105-proof whiskey Cognac Finish, which has notes of spice, honey, almond and vanilla, is the company’s latest release, costing $70 per bottle. It’s available exclusively at the waterfront distillery’s gift shop at 301 E. Cromwell St. in Baltimore starting Tuesday.
