Angel’s Envy, a Louisville-based distiller producing finished whiskeys, announced that Owen Martin will join the company as Master Distiller.
Beginning on October 17, Martin will lead all aspects of production and oversee innovation for Angel’s Envy, including its annual Cask Strength program and limited release Cellar Collection and Founder’s Collection programs.
Martin is the first appointed Master Distiller of the company since co-founder and Master Distiller Lincoln Henderson’s passing in 2013.
Martin, working at Angel’s Envy’s newly expanded distillery in downtown Louisville, will lead the production team as it remains dedicated to bringing new and innovative finished whiskeys to fans while continuing to produce its highly acclaimed core offerings – a Kentucky Straight Bourbon Finished in Port Wine Barrels and a Rye Whiskey Finished in Caribbean Rum Casks.
Martin will be joining Angel’s Envy from Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey. While at Stranahan’s, Martin quickly rose through the ranks during his six-year tenure, most recently serving as Head Distiller. His love of finished whiskeys was born while studying at the prestigious Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, Scotland, and throughout his career, he has continued to gain a unique knowledge of whiskey maturation techniques from across the country and globe.
