The Team

WES HENDERSON | CO-FOUNDER & CHIEF INNOVATION OFFICER

As Chief Innovations Officer, Wes Henderson has worked diligently to provide the clear and enthusiastic voice that Angel’s Envy has needed to succeed. Under his guidance, the company has grown both successfully and sustainably.

Before he co-founded Louisville Distilling Company with Lincoln, Wes served as CEO for Master Distiller Select LLC, where he was additionally responsible for distilled spirits consulting services. Before that, he was the President and CEO of Conecuh Ridge Distillery — a brand that enjoyed favorable mainstream recognition. He received his education from the College of Aeronautics at the Florida Institute of Technology.

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.
