Angel’s Envy is made in small batches of six to eight barrels at a time. Their line of two Bourbons and one Rye are the only products that currently come from Louisville Distilling.
Long-time industry veteran Lincoln Henderson founded both the distillery and the brand. Every aspect of production tightly controlled — from yeast strains through distillation. They also brought secondary aging techniques used in Scotland to American Bourbon, for the first time.
After aging their Whiskeys about six years in new oak, they finished them — the Bourbons in Port Wine casks and the Rye -- in Cognac/Rum casks.
Their signature cask strength Bourbon was declared “The Best Spirit in the World,” with smooth, well-rounded mouth-feel with notes of vanilla, sultanas, maple, and dark chocolate. The finish is decently long, but finishes clean with the scent of the wine lingering in the nose.
