About Angel’s Envy: Angel’s Envy is the culmination of the late Master Distiller Lincoln Henderson's storied, 40 year career, which he spent crafting some of the finest whiskeys in the world. One of the original pioneers of premium bourbons and whiskeys, Lincoln wasn’t content to rest on his laurels after he’d made a name for himself. Driven by a craftsman’s desire to improve upon his life’s work, Lincoln came out of retirement to create a whiskey masterpiece on his own terms — Angel’s Envy. In addition to the flagship Kentucky Straight Bourbon Finished in Port Barrels, the company offers Angel’s Envy Rye Finished in Rum Barrels and Angel’s Envy Cask Strength Bourbon Finished in Port Barrels. Each Expression exhibits a passion for experimenting outside of the conventional, producing unique whiskey steeped in tradition, but with an unexpected finish. Angel’s Envy opened its new distillery and brand home in 2016. Located at 500 East Main Street, the distillery is the first full-production whiskey distillery in downtown Louisville. The distillery houses all operations from the milling of grains to blending and bottling on site. The gift shop and The Finishing Room tasting experience add to the distillery tour, offering guests a uniquely personal experience in Louisville and the Bourbon Trail.
