"I never regretted a day when I had to go to work," says Henderson, who was awarded Malt Advocates Lifetime Achievement Award and was an inaugural member of the Kentucky Bourbon Hall of Fame.After retiring from Brown-Forman, Henderson decided to go rogue and launched Angels Envy. "Angels Envy is a lot of things," says Henderson, including the culmination of "my lifes work." The name is derived from the term "angels share" the portion of whiskey that evaporates as it ages in wooden barrels. After tasting the whiskey, Henderson realized that the angels might want a larger cut.Angels Envy Rye Finished in Plantation XO Rum Casks is released just twice each year in the autumn and spring. The rum casks were previously used to age French cognac, which adds an additional layer of complexity on the palate. Its a collision of bold flavors as the raw, spicy rye mingles with the mellow sweetness of the rum, culminating in a uniquely delicious spirit. Pick up a bottle of rye today!
