Angel’s Envy Finishes

There’s bourbon. And then there’s divine inspiration painstakingly crafted into a spirit so sublime you’ll want to share it with the world. We make the second one. ANGEL’S ENVY is what happens when 200 years of bourbon tradition meet an independent master craftsman’s instinct to improve. It’s a total return to the art of craft-first, hand blended batches of 8 to 12 barrels at a time.

We personally taste every barrel throughout each step of the aging process to ensure that the spirits meet our perfectionist standards. This would be enough for any other premium bourbon, but we think you deserve more. That’s why we finish every one of our whiskeys in hand-selected finishing barrels. For an added layer of flavor and complexity, our bourbon and special cask strength are finished in ruby port casks, and our rye is finished in rum barrels. There’s no set time for this process.

It’s only Angel’s Envy when we say it is.

OUR STORY

Rooted in 200 years of bourbon heritage, we create hand-finished spirits that aren’t afraid to improve on the classic tradition. Inspired by legendary Master Distiller Lincoln Henderson’s lifetime spent crafting fine spirits, ANGEL’S ENVY is our masterpiece.

OUR PROCESS

Some people might say we have a problem when they hear that we personally sample each barrel of ANGEL’S ENVY throughout every step of the finishing process. We agree. We’re raging perfectionists.

Good enough is never good enough

We’re restless creators who respect and celebrate the bourbon tradition, but try not to shackle ourselves to it. We approach each spirit that we finish with a craftsman’s passion to experiment and improve.

Did you Know?

Today, our main building is connected to a small structure in the back, and in the process, we’ve captured a tiny, very strange piece of Louisville history. That’s right, our bourbon tanks are now housed in our very own little stretch of Billy Goat Strut Alley.
