Angel's Envy

Angel's Envy in Downtown Louisville makes more than "bourbon", producing "divine inspiration painstakingly crafted into a spirit so sublime you’ll want to share it with the world." At Angel's Envy, 200 years of bourbon tradition meet an independent master craftsman’s instinct to improve. It’s a total return to the art of craft-first, hand blended batches of 8 to 12 barrels at a time. Each barrel is personally tasted throughout each step of the aging process, ensuring that the spirits meet their perfectionist standards. This would be enough for any other premium bourbon, but Angel's Envy believes you deserve more; that’s why they finish every whiskey in hand-selected finishing barrels. For an added layer of flavor and complexity, their bourbon and special cask strength are finished in ruby port casks, and their rye is finished in rum barrels. There’s no set time for this process, as "it’s only Angel’s Envy when [they] say it is."
