About the role

Louisville Distilling Company was founded by father and son, Lincoln and Wes Henderson. Their first whiskey, Angel’s Envy Kentucky Straight Bourbon Finished in Port Barrels was inspired by Master Distiller Lincoln Henderson’s lifetime spent crafting some of the world’s finest spirits. One of the original pioneers of the premium bourbon and whiskey categories in the U.S., Lincoln created the world's finest bourbon on his own terms and with a simple desire to enjoy the art of making whiskey. This philosophy remains at the heart of everything we do, and we embrace the restless craftsman’s spirit, relentless in our desire to innovate and improve. Angel’s Envy may have been our first masterpiece, but it certainly won’t be our last.
