The Story

After graduating college, Lincoln Henderson joined Brown-Forman as a grain chemist and was eventually promoted to Master Distiller. During his 40-year tenure at Brown-Forman, Henderson honed his skills while developing new brands such as Woodford Reserve Bourbon, Jack Daniel's "Gentleman Jack" and Jack Daniel's Single Barrel Whiskey. In addition to being responsible for the development of new products, Henderson oversaw quality control, technical distillery supervision and sensory evaluation. "I never regretted a day when I had to go to work," says Henderson, who was awarded Malt Advocate's Lifetime Achievement Award and was an inaugural member of the Kentucky Bourbon Hall of Fame.

After retiring from Brown-Forman, Henderson decided to go rogue and launched Angel's Envy Bourbon. "Angel's Envy is a lot of things," says Henderson. "It's my life's work. It's a whiskey of incomparable smoothness. It takes into account over 200 years of bourbon heritage and mingles it with over 400 years of port wine heritage." The name is derived from the term "angel's share" — the portion of whiskey that evaporates as it ages in wooden barrels. After tasting the bourbon, Henderson realized that the angel's might want a larger cut.

Angel’s Envy is an exceptional Kentucky straight bourbon finished in port wine barrels. Given the Highest Recommendation by Spirit Journal, celebrated by Whisky Advocate, The Bourbon Review, and awarded Wine Enthusiast’s highest bourbon rating, Angel’s Envy is unlike any other whiskey you’ve ever tasted.

Distilled above an ancient underground water source, Highclere Castle Gin is produced in England’s oldest gin distillery in one of the oldest working copper gin stills dating back to the 1800s.

This recipe was carefully developed over two years, after experimenting with several botanicals homegrown on the Highclere estate this meticulous selection of ingredients was chosen for the recipe that includes the extraction of essential oils, which in the presence of alcohol gives Highclere Castle Gin its uniquely smooth character.

At the beginning of the distillation process, the botanicals are slowly added to the still, along with a charge of spirits. After the lid is closed the steam jacket gently warms the still. This warming process allows the botanicals to begin releasing their oils for distillation and this process of maceration continues overnight. The following morning, the stills are heated to a higher temperature, making the charge boil.

A boiling process turns the liquid into vapor, which evaporates to the swan neck and water-cooled condenser, creating the liquid. The distillate is separated out into three parts; heads, hearts and tails. Only the heart section is used in the Highclere gin-making process; the most subtle and refined of the aromas and flavors are given off during the distillation.

The resultant high proof liquid is blended with water to precisely 43.5% ABV for maximum flavor. Known as "the real Downton Abbey," Highclere Castle distilled this award-winning London Dry Gin to have an exceptionally smooth flavor profile which comes from ingredients like lavender, which was planted by the Bishops of Winchester in the 9th century, and citrus from the Victorian-era orangery and juniper that has grown wild at Highclere since Roman times. Highclere Castle Gin earned gold awards from both Critics Challenge and Proof awards, receiving a score of 94.
