The 5% of spirit lost each year during barrel aging is called the “Angel’s Share,” and after tasting the finished whiskey, founding Master Distiller Lincoln Henderson joked that he’d finally gotten a better deal than the angels. And with that, ANGEL’S ENVY was born.
ANGEL’S ENVY is always exploring new ways to innovate and push boundaries and starts with finely crafted and aged whiskeys. After they age the whiskey in new, charred oak barrels, it is placed into a secondary “finishing” cask to add complexity and maintain a nuanced, yet approachable flavor profile.
In 2016, ANGEL’S ENVY opened the first full production whiskey distillery along Whiskey Row in downtown Louisville. Today, the team continues to produce its award-winning whiskeys on Main Street and welcomes guests each day to see how we make ANGEL’S ENVY and then taste why.
