Angel’s Envy Bourbon tells BourbonBlog.com that In celebration of the 10th anniversary of Founder’s Day (August 19th), when they filled their first port barrel, the brand is releasing just 1,200 bottles of this rare, limited-run release of Bourbon finished in Japanese Mizunara Oak Casks, at 97.8 proof, at the MSRP of $349.99 for a 750 mL bottle.
Ten years ago, BourbonBlog.com was the first media outlet to review and report on Angel’s Envy back in 2010, bringing enthusiasts an early inside look the Bourbon on this review. We were also first to report on the Rye in the video below.
Angel’s Envy Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey Finished in Japanese Mizunara Oak Casks is a blend of four-year-old and nine-year-old Angel’s Envy Kentucky Straight Bourbon that is finished in hand-selected, charred, new Japanese Mizunara oak casks for an additional two years. It is said to be the first-ever Bourbon whiskey releases finished in this particular oak.
This release is the first in Angel’s Envy Founder’s Collection, which exclusively includes releases that will commemorate brand anniversaries, special events, and milestones.
“Ten years ago today, my dad Lincoln and I filled our first port barrels with the bourbon that would eventually become Angel’s Envy. In celebration, we wanted to release something special to honor my dad’s incredible legacy, how far Angel’s Envy has come and our exciting future ahead,” Wes Henderson, Angel’s Envy Co-founder, and Chief Innovation Officer tells BourbonBlog.com.
“We chose this release for the tenth anniversary because my dad, having taken on several consulting roles in Japan during his career, always had a deep appreciation for the country and its distilling community. This release, finished in Mizunara casks made from this rare, 200-year-old wood, felt fitting for such a special milestone for Angel’s Envy.”
Following the 500 Main presales for members (learn more here), the limited run of just 1,200 bottles will be available for public purchase beginning on September 1, 2020 at Angel’s Envy distillery in downtown Louisville and select retailers in Kentucky. There will be a one-bottle limit per customer.
