ANGEL’S ENVY, the Louisville-based craft distiller that produces small batch, hand-finished whiskeys, today announced its first new release since 2013, a limited-edition bourbon finished in Oloroso Sherry casks, ANGEL’S ENVY Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey Finished in Oloroso Sherry Casks.

Just 3,600 bottles are available for purchase at the ANGEL’S ENVY Distillery in Downtown Louisville and select retailers in Kentucky. Beginning on February 12 there will be a limited number of reservations available through 500 Main, ANGEL’S ENVY membership platform for loyal fans, 72 hours before the release officially is on sale to the general public.

“With our latest ANGEL’S ENVY expression, we’ve taken inspiration from the Venenciador of Spain, whose exacting pull and pour of sherry is required to aerate the liquid in order to reveal its true character,” said Wes Henderson, Chief Innovation Officer and Founder at ANGEL’S ENVY.

“We took a page from that book and chose to let this limited release rest for an extended finishing period in Oloroso sherry barrels, lengthening the oxidation process for a sophisticated level of flavor. We chose Oloroso sherry casks because we believed the nutty notes from the Oloroso Sherry would pair well with our bourbon.”

Beginning on February 15 at 8:00 a.m., while supplies last, Sherry will be available to the public for purchase at the distillery as well as select retailers in Kentucky. The Henderson Family will be onsite at the distillery on February 15 to welcome guests and sign bottles.

Before entering the Oloroso Sherry casks, the bourbon was aged for 4-9 years. It was then finished in Oloroso Sherry casks between two and three years. At 100-proof, ANGEL’S ENVY Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey Finished in Oloroso Sherry Casks has a sweet nose with hints of raisin and hazelnut.
