On August 17th, we joined in on the festivities at the Angel’s Envy bourbon dinner, at the Marriott East Hotel, Kentucky’s newest luxury and ONLY Bourbon themed full-service hotel. Located off I-64 & Hurstbourne Lane, the hotel is a perfect location for your start or finish of the Kentucky Bourbon Trail® tour or Urban Bourbon Trail® adventure. The Charr’d Bourbon Kitchen & Lounge has over 80 Bourbons under one roof as well as Bourbon-enhanced cocktails & food.
The Bourbon Lovers group, comprised of around 400 bourbon lovers, traveled in from Chicago, Los Angeles, Florida, & Alabama, just to name a few.
Highlights of the evening include:
The Angel’s Envy family headlined the event with Lincoln, Wesley, & Kyle Henderson.
The event was a huge success as Mint Julep Tours gave away several tours and gift baskets in a drawing held at the event. The Henderson family also donated a Port Barrel that Angel’s Envy is finished aging in. This was bid on in a silent auction throughout the night with proceeds going to a Colon Cancer foundation.

About Angel’s Envy:
Angel’s Envy Bourbon was created by Master Distiller Lincoln Henderson - the man who worked to develop renowned brands such as Woodford Reserve, Jack Daniel’s “Gentleman Jack” and Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel. One of the world’s leading spirits experts, he was an inaugural member of the Kentucky Bourbon Hall of Fame and has received Malt Advocate’s Lifetime Achievement Award.
Distilled from Kentucky-grown grains, Angel’s Envy Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is aged for four to six years in American white oak barrels, then finished for three to six additional months in hand-selected port casks.
Angel’s Envy will be a new addition in their creation of the only full scale distillery located in downtown Louisville, sometime in late 2014.
