The Angel Has Landed

Every picture tells a story, don't it?

Today at roughly 3:00 PM EDT, Insider Louisville posted this photograph. It shows three Angel's Envy signs being mounted on the former Vermont American building in Louisville, across the street from Louisville Slugger Field.

Wes Henderson, Chief Operating Officer of Angel's Envy, confirms that this means what it appears to mean; this is where Angel's Envy (Louisville Distilling Company, actually) will build its new distillery and visitors center. A formal announcement is pending.

The location became an open secret at the end of May, when Insider Louisville put the pieces together and reached that conclusion. Company executives would neither confirm nor deny on the record but indicated that the deal wasn't entirely done, and a premature announcement might hurt their negotiating position.

There is still a long way to go but Louisville architects Luckett & Farley say this is what it will look like when it's finished. Exactly when that will be is still TBD.

Stoked, but not especially sure of the Mike Brady Bunch 70's exterior there. Looks like 1/2 swordfish, 1/2 Silence of the Lambs bug collection.

This is great news, I hope they'll be putting out some unfinished whiskey as well.
