Angel’s Envy Kentucky Straight Bourbon is finished in port wine casks for an award winning spirit. It’s blended in handcrafted bourbon in small batches of 8 to 10 barrels at a time. It’s typically aged for up to 6 years. About 5% of the spirit is lost each year to evaporation, or “the Angel’s Share,” what’s left behind after we’re done is truly worthy of envy.
Angel’s Envy is finished in ruby port wine casks, adding subtle nuances that enhance the flavor without challenging it. The port finishing process lasts between three to six months depending on taste. They use 60-gallon ruby port barrels made from French oak and imported directly from Portugal.
