CASK STRENGTH: STRAIGHT RYE WHISKEY EDITION

Crafted by our Master Distiller, Owen Martin, we are thrilled to introduce our first-ever Angel’s Envy 2023 Cask Strength Rye Whiskey Finished in Sauternes and Toasted Oak Barrels at 114.4-proof (57.2% ABV). This inaugural Cask Strength Rye launch blends two incredibly unique barrels rather than the more familiar Rum-barrel finish, offering an innovative flavor profile with delightfully creamy notes.  We invite you to collect and savor this special limited-edition release, now available in select states and at the Angel’s Envy Distillery.

A NOTE FROM OWEN

CASK STRENGTH, REDEFINED

I put a special touch on this release by blending barrels selected first-hand of two rye whiskeys – one finished in Sauternes Casks and the other finished in Toasted Oak Barrels. These special barrels offer distinct notes in the whiskey, giving each Cask Strength release a unique nose, palate, and finish. While experimenting with blending, I found that they complemented each other and couldn’t imagine cutting the blend down. And so, Cask Strength Rye was born.

With my first Angel’s Envy Cask Strength release, I aim to share not only the rich flavors but also the stories and emotions blended into each sip.
