Louisville Distilling Company plans to release Angel’s Envy Rye in June, joining the Angel’s Envy Bourbon in the company’s core range.

While the Bourbon is finished in Port Wine casks, Lincoln Henderson decided to give the Rye a touch of the islands.

“We considered finishing a spirit in rum casks for some time and ultimately felt that the spiciness of a well-rounded Rye provided the best pairing,” said Lincoln Henderson, Master Distiller, Angel’s Envy.  “We sourced and sampled more than 100 different rums, before unanimously choosing one with extraordinary richness that perfectly marries with our rye whiskey.”

Angel’s Envy Rye will be bottled at 50% ABV, and will initially be available in California, Florida, Illinois, Kentucky, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Texas.
