Angel's Envy Bourbon 750ml
When other bourbons stop - Angel’s Envy Finishes
There’s bourbon. And then there’s divine inspiration painstakingly crafted into a spirit so sublime you’ll want to share it with the world. We make the second one. ANGEL’S ENVY is what happens when 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.
We personally taste every barrel throughout each step of the aging process to ensure that the spirits meet our perfectionist standards. This would be enough for any other premium bourbon, but we think you deserve more. That’s why we finish every one of our whiskeys in hand-selected finishing barrels. For an added layer of flavor and complexity, our bourbon and special cask strength are finished in ruby port casks, and our rye is finished in rum barrels. There’s no set time for this process.
It’s only Angel’s Envy when we say it is.
WHAT IS ANGEL’S ENVY?
Angel’s Envy is a “Kentucky Straight Bourbon Finished in Port Barrels”.
(So what does that mean?)
A “straight” bourbon must be aged for at least 2 years, and must have an age statement on the label if it’s aged less than 4 years. Our whiskey is typically aged between 4 to 6 years in new, charred 53-gallon American white oak barrels. Next, we blend the bourbon to meet our ideal flavor profile. That would be enough for other bourbons, but we take things one step further.
DOUBLE MATURATION, OR “FINISHING”
Aging in two different types of barrels is called double maturation. In the final stage of our production, we finish our bourbon for up to six additional months in 60-gallon Port barrels from Portugal. It’s blended again in batches of 8 – 12 barrels at a time. There’s no set time for this final finishing process, it’s only Angel’s Envy when we say it is.
