Bacardi's American whiskey division, Angel's Envy, has lined up a limited expression from its namesake Bourbon brand that will be available in limited numbers in the distiller's home state of Kentucky. A total of 3,600 bottled of Angel's Envy finished in Oloroso Sherry casks will be on offer from later this month. The no-age-statement expression marks the first release from the Angel's Envy brand since 2013.

The launch will be available initially to consumers who are signed up as members of the unit's 500 Main club, before rolling out to selected outlets across Kentucky three days later.

"We've taken inspiration from the Venenciador of Spain, whose exacting pull and pour of Sherry is required to aerate the liquid in order to reveal its true character," said Angel's Envy founder & chief innovation officer Wes Henderson. "We took a page from that book and chose to let this limited release rest for an extended finishing period in Oloroso sherry barrels, lengthening the oxidation process for a sophisticated level of flavour."

Bacardi inherited the Bourbon brand four years ago, when it acquired parent company Angel's Share Brands for an undisclosed sum. Since then, the multi-spirits group has embarked on a trademark battle with UK spirits company La Fee over the latter's Envy range of spirits.
