Recently, Robb Report recognized our Kentucky Straight Bourbon Finished in Oloroso Sherry Casks as one of the Top 10 Spirits of 2019, and the Top Bourbon. Naturally, we are humbled and thrilled to be named alongside this collection of excellent spirits. We are also very proud of the reception for the first release from our new Cellar Collection.
Co-founder and Chief Innovation Officer Wes Henderson says, “When my dad and I first started dreaming up what we wanted Angel’s Envy to be, we planned to explore many innovative approaches to bourbon making, and one of those innovations included secondary barrel finishes. Ultimately, we decided that a ruby port finish would be the right choice to lead with, but we never forgot some of those other ideas. The plan has always been to continue to experiment and explore, and really push the boundaries of bourbon.”
“My father used to say, “Taste is never an accident.” He wasn’t afraid to experiment with new flavors and techniques to find the flavors he was looking for, and our Cellar Collection gives us the chance to honor his pioneering spirit. It’s like our playground, but for whiskey. In the case of our bourbon finished in Oloroso sherry casks, we got our hands on a handful of sherry barrels, and we let our bourbon absorb the character from those barrels until it found that perfect balance of flavor. We couldn’t have been happier with its reception, and we’re looking forward to our additional Cellar Collection releases planned for the next few years. We’re genuinely excited to share what we’ve been working on, and we hope that you enjoy this collection as much as we do.”
