Angel’s Envy Unveils Details for New $8.2 Million Expansion in Downtown Louisville


July 15, 2021

Angel’s Envy announced details of an $8.2 million expansion to its downtown Louisville distillery and welcome center.

The expansion will add more than 13,000 square feet, including a new event space and bar, a larger retail space and five new tasting rooms. Construction began in late 2020 and is expected to be completed in Spring 2022.

Additionally, the expansion will include an event space and full catering kitchen, allowing the distillery to be used for pairing dinners and private gatherings such as conferences and corporate events. Another new feature will be a designated room for an Angel’s Envy “Bottle Your Own” experience, which, post-expansion, will offer guests the chance to fill their own bottles of distillery exclusives.

“Since opening the doors to our distillery in 2016, we’ve been so fortunate to see an increased demand from guests hoping to visit us and take part in tours, experiences and classes,” Angel’s Envy co-founder and Chief Innovation Officer Wes Henderson, said in a news release. “This expansion will double the number of fans we’re able to meet and raise a glass of Angel’s Envy with throughout the year. We’re proud to call Louisville our hometown and contribute to its continued growth by creating new jobs for Kentuckians and offering a new reason for people to visit downtown and the Kentucky Bourbon Trail as a whole.”
