Angel’s Envy: A Bourbon Beyond Compare


Most popular


In a world where bourbon flows as freely as Southern charm, one brand has managed to carve out its own unique niche as a cut above the rest. ANGEL’S ENVY, a name synonymous with expertise and luxury, is at the forefront of the bourbon renaissance, capturing the essence of craftsmanship, innovation, and new frontiers in a bottle. 


In the world of spirits, the ‘Angel’s Share’ commonly refers to the five percent of spirit lost each year during the barrel aging process due to evaporation. ANGEL’S ENVY was born after founding Master Distiller and industry veteran Lincoln Henderson joked about getting a better deal than the angels when he first tasted the finished whiskey.

A Cut Above the Rest

In the world of whiskey, the term “premium” is often tossed around, but what truly sets ANGEL’S ENVY apart as a premium bourbon? The answer lies in its meticulous craftsmanship and dedication to quality. Every step of the production process is carefully curated to ensure the highest standards are met.


The liquid begins its journey with a blend of the finest grains, including corn, rye, and malted barley, sourced from trusted suppliers. This select blend forms the foundation of a bourbon that’s destined for greatness. The whiskey is distilled in small batches, allowing for precision and consistency that only a master distiller, like Henderson, can achieve.


What truly distinguishes ANGEL’S ENVY Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey Finished in Port Wine Barrels, however, is its finishing process. After aging in new charred oak barrels, the bourbon is transferred to a second “finishing cask” Port wine barrels. This unconventional step introduces a complexity and depth of flavour that is truly unique. The bourbon’s final resting place in these barrels allows it to mature gracefully, creating a harmonious marriage of bourbon and Port wine influences. Henderson, who passed in 2013, was a true innovator and trailblazer within the world of Bourbon. Today, his legacy and pioneering spirit are carried forward with Master Distiller Owen Martin, who joined Angel’s Envy in 2022.

The Daring Darling

For the seasoned bourbon lover, ANGEL’S ENVY offers an exploration of nuanced flavours. The final touch of a secondary finishing creates a sensory experience that’s unmatched in the world of whiskey, making it an exquisite gift for those who appreciate the artistry of bourbon-making.


But it’s not just the aficionados who benefit from this liquid gold. It also beckons to the novices with its approachable flavour profile. The subtle sweetness and balanced notes of vanilla, ripe fruit, maple syrup, and bitter chocolate provide a welcoming introduction to the world of bourbon, enticing newcomers to explore its depths further. 


The versatility of ANGEL’S ENVY extends beyond its giftable nature. While savoring it neat allows you to appreciate the full spectrum of flavours, it’s also a star player in the world of mixology. Craft cocktails have experienced a renaissance of their own in recent years, and ANGEL’S ENVY has become a darling of mixologists and home bartenders alike. Its rich and complex flavours provide an ideal canvas for creating innovative cocktails or a classic libation as a hero ingredient, like the Manhattan.

The Whiskey Guardian

Behind every great brand, there is often an equally great keeper of the craft. In the case of ANGEL’S ENVY, this is manifested in a legion of over 50 Whiskey Guardians across Canada and the USA who are tasked with whiskey education within their communities. At the forefront of this group of people is Angel Teta, National Guardian of Advocacy and Brand Culture at Angel’s Envy. With a name that’s almost too serendipitous to be real, she is the embodiment of the brand’s dedication to excellence.


“What sets us apart is the people who we, as a brand, seek to bring into the fold,” says Teta. “They are creatives, bartenders, whiskey nerds, hospitality experts, and over everything, passionate about each and every aspect of how they present ANGEL’S ENVY to both industry and consumers.”


Teta brings more than just a name to the table; she brings a wealth of experience and a profound love for whiskey. As one of the guardians for the brand, she’s also blazed new trails for industry counterparts who command excellence, especially other women working in what has historically been a male-dominated industry. 


“I’m not one to let what has ‘always been done’ deter me from what I want to achieve,” she says. “It has motivated me more to advocate not only for myself, but for all the talented women in and around the spirits industry to get a little more shine on what we do and how vital we are.”
