The Sagamore Spirit Visitor Center will be open under reduced occupancy for shopping your favorite whiskies, barware, and home goods. We’ve made significant updates to the interior of our space to promote physical distancing. Plexiglass shields were installed at check-out and we continue to sanitize both high and low-touch areas frequently. Teammates are monitored for symptoms at the beginning of every shift and are required to wear a mask at all times. Masks will also be required for guests while inside. We offer curbside pickup for those who would prefer not to enter. Visit our shop here.

Private Distillery Tours and other experiences are now available and can be booked here.

An additional tented space located in the courtyard is available for first-come, first-serve seating. Within this area, food and drink from the Bar Menu can be ordered from the indoor bar. Six high-top tables are available for parties of four or less. After ordering with a bartender, customers will return to their table to wait for their food and drink. This area does not require reservations. Cocktails are meant to be enjoyed on campus.
