American By Allyson Nichols / December 20, 2020 The chance to win the money’s worth of an entire barrel of rye whiskey from Maryland whiskey brand Sagamore Spirit came online recently. The opportunity comes with the brand’s celebration of “RyeDay the 13th,” its mock holiday of Friday the 13th. Sagamore wanted to offer one whiskey lover the chance to win a barrel of its Maryland-Style Signature Rye whiskey, but due to regulations, the brand chose to give away the cash equivalent of a barrel’s worth at $10,000 and that’s not the only thing the company is offering. The winner will also receive a VIP tour and tasting session at the Sagamore Spirit distillery and a one-night stay at the 5-star, award-winning, Sagamore Pendry Hotel on Baltimore’s waterfront. A barrel’s worth of rye whiskey from Sagamore (image via Sagamore) Friday the 13th has been a staple in the Sagamore history as its first product was launched on a Friday the 13th in May 2016. Since then, the brand has come to acknowledge each Friday the 13th of any month as “RyeDay the 13th.” “RyeDay the 13th is always a special day at Sagamore Spirit, one that our fans and partners have come to appreciate and anticipate,” said Brian Treacy, President of Sagamore Spirit, in a prepared statement. “We wanted to make this version especially exciting, because who couldn’t use that right now? So, while the offer of winning a barrel comes with a wink, that’s kind of the point. We also wanted to make it easier to take part, and to do so responsibly, whether at a favorite local spot or neighborhood store. We eagerly await the big day.” Read More Whiskey NewsUnicorn Auctions Offers An Online Whiskey Auction Model To American ConsumersAdults age 21 and older can enter through Dec. 31, 2020 at participating bars, restaurants and liquor stores throughout the U.S. by scanning a QR Code visible on cocktail kits, to-go containers and product displays with no purchase necessary, as well as on the Sagamore Spirit website.
