Angel’s Envy Surprises With A New Release Just In Time For Father’s Day

Angel’s Envy released its third limited-edition expression to their Cellar Collection. A Kentucky Straight Bourbon finished in Madeira casks.

Angel’s Envy said of the Madeira Casks, “In 2015, the Henderson family visited the island of Madeira in search of their next extraordinary finishing barrels. Only after sampling more than 30 varieties of Madeira wine did they find the perfect cask for our third Cellar Collection release.”

Found in downtown Louisville, Kentucky, The brand is no stranger to family tradition. Industry legend Lincoln Henderson came out of retirement to work on the newest installment with his son Wes. Currently, the distillery is being run by Wes and his sons, making bourbon and rye whiskey finished in a variety of casks.
