Office Bourbon: Angel's Envy
The Want: A bottle to keep in the desk drawer that’s suitable to toast the next big deal or the Friday of an especially rough week.
The Get: Angel’s Envy Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey ($45 per 750 milliliter bottle) by Louisville Distilling. Aged in white oak and Portuguese port wine barrels, this bourbon is excellent neat and can anchor a cocktail, even if mixers are limited (see “Impromptu Office Mixology”). Lincoln Henderson, former master distiller for Woodford Reserve and member of the Kentucky Bourbon Hall of Fame, provides the artisan’s touch. To be shared—because if ever there were a place not to drink alone, it’s the office.
