This first-of-its-kind release by finishing seven-year-old, 95% rye whiskey for 364 days in ice cider casks from Vermont-based Eden Specialty Ciders. It is the fourth release in ANGEL’S ENVY’s Cellar Collection, the brand’s special release program that honors the late Lincoln Henderson’s pioneering and innovative spirit.
The French oak ice cedar casks used in the final stage of Angels Envy Rye Finished in Ice Cider Casks come from an extremely limited release crafted by Eden Specialty Ciders. Their tart, late-season northern spy apples were pressed in 2018, concentrated in the depth of Vermont’s winter, and fermented to perfectly balance the robust autumn spice character of this special heirloom variety. We’ve selected a wintry icon to represent the journey required to produce this unique whiskey.
