Coming this fall: Angel’s Envy BourbonApril 29th, 2010
Lincoln Henderson, retired distillery manager of Woodford Reserve and Old Forester fame, is back in the bourbon game with the Louisville Distilling Company. He’ll be coming out with a new bourbon this fall called “Angel’s Envy.” This picture is from their Facebook page.
Here is some additional information from his son, Wes Henderson, which he posted up on Straightbourbon.com:
“I am pleased to confirm the rumors about Angel’s Envy Bourbon, and before taking any additional detailed information to the public, it is important for me to come before this group and provide some details, as we are prepared to release them…
These are exciting times as Lincoln returns to his Kentucky Bourbon roots. The first expresssion, produced on our behalf, will be available in September for national distribution, but our approach is to take it slow, and let the bourbon speak for itself. And we think it will.
We have narrowed our location to 2 potential sites, and are making final decisions on our distillation equipment. The current plan is to incorporate pot stills and continuous distillation into our process, allowing us to maintain an artisanal capability (Dad wants to try a whole bunch of things) and still have the ability to maintain production demands. Production at our facility is expected to begin in September of 2010.”
It’s nice to see Lincoln back in bourbon! We wish him all the best!
