While processing and bottling Angel’s Envy, it’s Kyle’s responsibility to taste each batch to ensure flavor, monitor the port finishing, bottle each batch and ensure Lincoln’s legacy of quality. Kyle deeply appreciated the opportunity to learn on the job with Lincoln Henderson. If you’ve ever had the pleasure of tasting Angel’s Envy, you’ll know that Kyle is doing excellent work.
Steve Cole - Marketing Director
As Angel’s Envy expands into new markets and Guardians increasingly represent the brand in cities around the world, one person must unite them all. Steve Cole is the best man for the job.

Under his watch, the field teams’ voice, presence and message for the brand is both bold, yet approachable.
As a special events manager and bartender in Chicago, Steve spent years spreading the gospel of bourbon. At Angel’s Envy, he’s found his true calling. A proud native of Chicago, Steve is now based in San Diego. From there, he spreads the word of Angel’s Envy across the country.
Kevin Curtis - Distillery Operations Manager
For years, Kevin has been a close friend of the Henderson family. He first met Lincoln at Brown Forman. He had graduated with a biology degree and no real idea about what he wanted to do. A friend helped him find a job in Research and Development at Brown Forman, and after a year of being a “lab rat,” he was selected and trained to serve as the Operations Manager for Woodford Reserve. From 1996 until 2009, Kevin oversaw the restoration of the facility, distilling, warehousing, processing, bottling and facility maintenance. It was during this time that he worked closely with Lincoln Henderson.
Now that Kevin has joined Angel’s Envy, he’ll be working get the new distillery up and running as quickly as possible. The brand has also acquired the old Yellowstone Distillery warehouse on 10 acres of land, which will allow for two new barrelhouses. Once the new facilities are operational, Kevin will work daily to ensure that quality whiskey is barreled long enough for great whiskey to be put in bottles.
