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 angels might want a larger cut.

Inspired by the history and the level of craftsmanship required in Madeira wine production, the Henderson visited the island of Madeira in 2015, where they sampled more than 30 varieties of Madeira wine to find the perfect Madeira wine casks for their third Cellar Collection release. The result was Angel's Envy Kentucky Straight Bourbon Finished in Madeira Casks. This limited-edition release is a blend of bourbons, finished for 1 year in Madeira casks. Bottled at 100 proof, expect aromas of caramelized banana, brown sugar, raisins, and almonds, while the palate offers oak, grass, smoke, leather, chocolate, and dried cherries.
