Angel’s envy announced a limited edition: Ice Cider Casks

Angel’s Envy has announced the release of its Angel’s Envy Rye Whiskey Finished in Ice Cider Casks. This is a seven years old whiskey (95% rye) finished for 364 days in ice cider casks from Vermont-based Eden Specialty Ciders. Ice cider is a dessert-style cider that is produced mostly in the northern US and Canada. The French oak casks used to finish this Angel’s Envy release were used by Eden Specialty Ciders to create an ice cider from tart, late-season Northern Spy apples that had been naturally cold-concentrated in Vermont before partial fermentation and aging.

“The flavor profile of this whiskey is very unique – the spiciness of the rye is balanced by the fruity sweetness from the ice cider casks, and there’s a crispness that is really distinct. We’ve never seen a whiskey finished in ice cider casks before, so we’re excited to introduce this finish as part of our Cellar Collection,”  said Kyle Henderson, Angel’s Envy’s distillery production manager. “

This bottling is the fourth in the Cellar Collection, the brand’s special release honoring the late Lincoln Henderson’s pioneering and innovative spirit. The whiskey comes in a frosted glass bottle and commemorative gift box.

Angel’s Envy Rye Whiskey Finished in Ice Cider Casks is bottled at 107-proof (53.5% ABV) for an SRP of $249.99.

The release is limited to 6.000 bottles, and will be available for purchase beginning on February 25 at select retailers in NY, CA, FL, TN, IL, TX and KY, as well as at Angel’s Envy’s downtown Louisville distillery.
