As Bacardi acquires Angel’s Envy, BourbonBlog.com‘s Tom Fischer interviews Angel’s Envy Founder Wes Henderson. We will bring you the full interview soon on BourbonBlog.com.
Bacardi Ltd. will let Angel’s Envy continue to be seen as a Henderson family label, in much the same way Beam Suntory-owned Maker’s Mark is identified with its founding Samuels family. Finacial terms of the deal have not yet been disclosed. The purchase of Angel’s Envy includes that of Angel’s Share Brands, its Louisville Distilling Co. subsidiary, the distillery being built on Main Street and the trademarked Angel’s Envy brand.
When Angel’s Envy launched in 2010, Wes says it helped bring his father and legendary master distiller Lincoln Henderson out of retirement. BourbonBlog.com was the first media outlet to review Angel’s Envy upon its launch and the first to cover the story of Angel’s Envy Rye release.
