Overview: Angel's Envy Bourbon, available exclusively through Third Base Market & Spirits, is a highly regarded and unique expression of Kentucky bourbon whiskey. This technical description provides a detailed insight into the distinctive attributes and meticulous production processes that make Angel's Envy a cherished choice among bourbon connoisseurs.

Ingredients: Angel's Envy Bourbon is crafted from premium ingredients, featuring:

  1. Grains: The primary grain in this bourbon is corn, contributing to its sweet and full-bodied character. A blend of rye and malted barley adds complexity.

  2. Yeast: A proprietary yeast strain is used during fermentation, leading to a distinctive flavor profile and aromatic characteristics.

  3. Water: Pure, limestone-filtered water from Kentucky is employed throughout the production process, ensuring consistency and quality.

Distillation: The production of Angel's Envy Bourbon adheres to a meticulous distillation process:

  1. Milling: Grains are finely milled to create a mash, exposing starches for fermentation.

  2. Mashing: The milled grains are mixed with water and heated to create a mash. Enzymes in malted barley facilitate the conversion of starches into fermentable sugars.

  3. Fermentation: The mash is transferred to fermentation tanks, where chosen yeast strains initiate fermentation, a process typically lasting several days. During this time, yeast converts sugars into alcohol and develops crucial flavor compounds.

  4. Distillation: The fermented mash is distilled in copper pot stills, concentrating the alcohol content while separating undesirable elements. The resulting distillate is meticulously collected and evaluated for quality.

Aging: Angel's Envy Bourbon undergoes an essential aging process:

  1. Barrel Selection: The distilled spirit is placed in new, charred oak barrels. The selection process ensures that each barrel contributes unique flavors to the bourbon.

  2. Secondary Aging: After initial aging, the bourbon is transferred to hand-selected ruby port wine barrels for additional maturation, which imparts distinctive fruity and complex notes.

  3. Aging Duration: Angel's Envy is aged for a minimum of 4-6 years, allowing it to develop a rich, well-balanced flavor profile.

Bottling and Proofing: Following aging and secondary maturation, each batch of Angel's Envy Bourbon is carefully sampled and proofed to the desired level, typically around 43.3% ABV (86.6 proof), using pure water to achieve the desired flavor profile.

Packaging: Angel's Envy Bourbon is elegantly presented in a uniquely designed bottle, featuring an angel's wings motif on the back, symbolizing the portion of the spirit lost to evaporation during aging (the "angel's share").

Conclusion: Angel's Envy Bourbon, exclusively available through Third Base Market & Spirits, stands as a testament to the art of bourbon-making in Kentucky. Crafted with precision, using superior ingredients, and aged to perfection, this bourbon offers a remarkable flavor profile admired by connoisseurs worldwide. It is celebrated for its unique approach to aging in port wine barrels, which adds a distinctive layer of complexity and character. Angel's Envy is a distinguished choice for those seeking a premium bourbon experience with a touch of innovation and elegance.
