Angel's Envy Distillery

When I visited Louisville a couple of weeks ago, I was delighted to see all the renovations that are going on in the Whiskey Row district. It's going to be such a fun place to eat, drink, and discover Downtown Louisville!

Whiskey Row is another fantastic example of Kentucky's growing Bourbon Tourism industry. It used to be that a few of bourbon's biggest labels boasted visitor centers. Now, there's the Kentucky Bourbon Craft Trail, a host of new labels popping up across the state, and tons of new ways to enjoy Kentucky's native spirit.

Yesterday, Angel's Envy Bourbon became the latest craft bourbon to add a presence on Whiskey Row. Along with Governor Steve Beshear and Mayor Greg Fischer, the label founded by former Woodford Reserve Master Distiller Lincoln Henderson held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new Angel's Envy distillery and brand experience center on Main Street.

The Angel's Envy center is not only great news for bourbon lovers. It also holds the promise of significant economic impact for Kentucky. With nearly $12 million in private equity investment and the promise of 40 new jobs, the distillery turns abandoned industrial spaces into a positive force for Kentucky's economy.

I can't wait to visit the Angel's Envy complex, which opens in 2014. In the meantime, I think I'll acquaint myself with their spirits -- a bourbon aged up to six years, a limited edition Cask Strength label aged in ruby port wine casks, and a rye. You can learn more about Angel's Envy on their Facebook page and Twitter.
