Angel’s Envy Bourbon is sampled throughout every step of the finishing process, they blend every batch to taste. Rooted in 200 years of bourbon heritage, they create hand-finished spirits that aren’t afraid to improve on the classic tradition. Inspired by legendary Master Distiller Lincoln Henderson’s lifetime spent crafting fine spirits, Angel’s Envy is a masterpiece. The 5% of spirit lost each year during barrel aging is called the “Angel’s Share.” After tasting the finished whiskey, Lincoln joked that we’d finally gotten a better deal than the angels. And so Angel’s Envy was born.
Often describe as malcontents, for Angel’s Envy ‘malcontent’ means that they can never be satisfied with good enough, and better still isn’t the best. Restless creators who respect and celebrate the bourbon tradition, but try not to shackle themselves to it. Approaching each spirit that is finished with a craftsman’s passion to experiment and improve, and work every day to ensure that Lincoln Henderson’s exacting standards and legacy of excellence continue with each batch.
A small company, very particular about their finished spirits. While this might make their product a little harder to find, they will never sacrifice our quality. Also never hosted or sponsored a competition in order to ‘earn’ awards. All of our high rankings and accolades have been earned the old fashioned way—unsolicited.
