Angel's Envy Kentucky Straight Bourbon
Angel's Envy Kentucky Straight Bourbon is finished in port wine casks for an award-winning spirit. Each batch's conditioning is guided, blending the handcrafted bourbon in small batches of 8 to 12 barrels at a time. It's typically aged for up to 6 years.
While we lose about 5% of the spirit each year to evaporation, or the Angel's Share, what's left behind after it is done is truly worthy of envy. Once it's deemed ready, we finish our bourbon in ruby port wine casks, which adds subtly distinct flavor nuances that enhance the whiskey without challenging it. The port finishing process lasts between three to six months, depending on taste. Vanilla, ripe fruit, maple syrup, toast and bitter chocolate

About an hour’s drive from Louisville, Kentucky, there’s a 350-acre plot of land upon which the ANGEL’S ENVY® Henry County distillery stands, and last year ANGEL’S ENVY® partnered with local farmers to turn 91 of those acres into co-opted cornfields. It was a good harvest (in more ways than one!), producing 16,000 bushels of corn, which accounted for less than 10% of our needs. And the good kept going because that corn needed cooks, which ANGEL’S ENVY® employed—43 of them to be exact—resulting in the production of around 40,000 Liters of Pure Alcohol (LPA). With the success of the FY22 harvest, ANGEL’S ENVY® plans to continue its partnership with local farmers for years to come.
