LOUISVILLE, Ky., Aug. 31, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- ANGEL'S ENVY®, the Louisville-based craft distiller that produces small batch, finished whiskeys, is now distributing ANGEL'S ENVY Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey Finished in Port Wine Barrels in select on-premise accounts in Vancouver and Montreal.
"Bourbon has long been a favourite spirit of our neighbors up north, so we're thrilled to share Angel's Envy and its unique flavour profile with a larger Canadian audience – including the fans we've already been fortunate enough to make along the way," said ANGEL'S ENVY Co-founder and Chief Innovation Officer Wes Henderson.
"As the second largest bourbon market behind the U.S., we believe that the Canadian market presents Angel's Envy with significant opportunity for growth," said Jay Needham, ANGEL'S ENVY Marketing Director. "Thanks to our close proximity, we've been fortunate to build a fan base in the market ahead of our official launch; we've already seen Canadian consumers express interest in our bourbon and our story, both on social media and while visiting us at our distillery in Louisville."
ANGEL'S ENVY Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey Finished in Port Wine Barrels is handcrafted in Louisville, Kentucky. It is blended in small batches of eight to twelve barrels at a time and aged for up to six years, then finished in 60-gallon ruby port wine casks made from French oak and imported directly from Portugal. The port finishing process lasts between three to six months, depending on taste.
ANGEL'S ENVY Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey Finished in Port Wine Barrels is 86.6 proof (43.3% ABV). On the nose, it offers notes of subtle vanilla, raisins, maple syrup and toasted nuts. On the palate, notes of vanilla, ripe fruit, maple syrup, toast and bitter chocolate are present before it finishes with a clean and lingering sweetness and a hint of Madeira that slowly fades.
