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.
KYLE HENDERSON | PRODUCTION MANAGER
Kyle works as Angel’s Envy’s Processing and Bottling Manager. In his spare time, he serves as one of Kentucky’s Guardians, promoting the spirit throughout its home state. Kyle is ambitious, a quick study and eager to learn from his family’s lifetime of bourbon experience.
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.
ANDREW HENDERSON | DISTILLERY OPERATOR
As the newest Henderson addition to our distillery team, Andrew has approached his role with humility and a very strong work ethic. Being new the business, he started labeling bottles. From there, he moved on to bottle filling, and then processing and production. He understands the value of learning every step of the distilling process.
Andrew currently works as one of our distillery operators, learning alongside his brother Kyle and Kevin Curtis, Angel’s Envy’s Distillery Operations Manager. He's also assisted Kyle with Cask selection. His enthusiasm and willingness to learn make him a welcome asset to the Angel’s Envy family.
