Louisville, Kentucky (December 14, 2017) – On Dec. 5, 2017, Louisville Distilling Company, producers of the highly celebrated Angel’s Envy Kentucky straight bourbon finished in port barrels, was honored to accept the Medium Size Business of the Year Award from Louisville Business First.

Based on its success, company culture, community participation and the unique approach to business at Angel’s Envy, the award was received by Wes Henderson, co-founder and chief innovation officer, during the dinner banquet.

“We always look for opportunities to do things better, and to create a more premium experience for our consumers and fans, both in the quality of our liquid and through their experiences at the distillery,” Henderson said. “It’s truly an honor to win this award, and we plan to continue to look for ways to get exceptional results.”

About Louisville Distilling Company LLC

Angel’s Envy is the culmination of the late Master Distiller Lincoln Henderson’s storied career, which he spent crafting some of the finest whiskeys in the world. One of the original pioneers of premium bourbons and whiskeys, Lincoln wasn’t content to rest on his laurels after he’d made a name for himself. Driven by a craftsman’s desire to improve upon his life’s work with over 40 years of experience, Lincoln came out of retirement to create a whiskey masterpiece on his own terms—Angel’s Envy. In addition to the flagship Kentucky Straight Bourbon Finished in Wine Port Barrels, the company offers Angel’s Envy Rye Finished in Rum Casks and Angel’s Envy Cask Strength Bourbon Finished in Port Wine Barrels. Each Expression exhibits a passion for experimenting outside of the conventional, and producing unique whiskey steeped in tradition, but with an unexpected finish.

Angel’s Envy opened its new distillery and visitor center in 2016. Located at 500 East Main Street, the distillery is the first full-production whiskey distillery in downtown Louisville. The distillery houses all operations from the milling of grains to blending and bottling on site. The gift shop and The Finishing Room tasting experience add to the distillery tour, offering guests a uniquely personal visit to Louisville and the Bourbon Trail.
