Kevin Plank’s Sagamore Spirit has begun taking reservations for tours of the Port Covington whiskey distillery scheduled to officially open April 21.
Tours on opening weekend are free, but after that, the company will charge an admission fee. Information about the tours is now posted on the distillery’s website.

“Baltimore is a place for risk-takers and history makers,” the website states. “Visit us to see how we honor that spirit and learn how we triple distill our award-winning rye whiskey. Our world-class waterfront distillery is directly off I-95, a short drive from Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. We can’t wait to share our spirit with you.”

The distillery is located at 301 E. Cromwell Street. It’s part of a 266-acre assemblage that Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank’s real estate company is redeveloping along the Middle Branch of the Patapsco River. Fifty of those acres, right next to the distillery, will be for a new global headquarters for Under Armour.

According to the distillery’s website, free tours of the facility will be offered during the opening weekend, April 21 to 23, every half hour from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sagamore Spirit is offering a gift to the first 83 guests.

After the first weekend, a visitor’s center will be open from 9:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. daily. Tour hours will be 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Tickets cost $15 for adults 21 and older, $10 for military personnel and $8 for young people 10 to 20 years old. Children ages 9 and under get in free.

The phone number for more information is 410-624-7488. More than 100,000 people a year are expected to visit the new distillery.
