LOUISVILLE, Ky. (July 21, 2021) – Exciting things are happening for bourbon lovers visiting Louisville. Bourbon City, known for bourbon culture, distilleries and the Urban Bourbon Trail® is welcoming the newest distillery on the block – Brough Brothers Bourbon, while also celebrating the planned expansion of Angel’s Envy, located in the heart of downtown Louisville.
Brough Brothers Bourbon
One of ten distillery visitor experiences available in Louisville. The distillery officially launched in 2019 becoming the first Black-owned distillery in Kentucky. Brough Brothers also features the state’s first African American Master Distiller, owner Bryson Yarbrough. Yarbrough’s brothers – Victor and Chris are also involved as owners.
As a craft distillery, the facility produces a barrel a week with an expected production of five to 10 barrels weekly in the future. The bottle design includes images highlighting Kentucky’s famed culture and icons with basketball, boxing, horse racing and Louisville’s skyline.

Angel’s Envy Expansion, Complete In Spring 2022
Angel’s Envy, a Louisville-based craft distiller since 2016, has unveiled the details of the upcoming $8.2M expansion to its downtown Louisville distillery tour. The expansion will add more than 13,000 square feet, including a new event space and bar, a larger retail space and several new tasting rooms. It will increase annual guest capacity by 64,000. Construction began in late 2020 and is expected to be completed in Spring 2022.
As a big fan of Angels Envy bourbons this distillery is on my “must visit” list the next time I’m in Louisville. I’d love to bottle my own Angel’s Envy and bring some back to my home bar.
Specific additions to the distillery experience will include additional bar space, five new bourbon tasting rooms for guests, event space and full catering kitchen, allowing the distillery to be used for pairing dinners and private gatherings such as conferences and corporate events as well as a designated room for the popular Angel’s Envy “Bottle Your Own” experience, which, post-expansion, will offer guests the chance to fill their own bottles of distillery-exclusives.
Angel’s Envy distillery will remain open to the public throughout the construction process; for more information about current offerings at the distillery, please visit angelsenvy.com
