Lou’s Beer Garden Launches It’s Own Blend of Angel’s Envy Bourbon

Premiers Saturday, September 27 from 8pm to 11pm with a Launch Party Featuring Complimentary Tastings of Lou’s Beer Garden Angel’s Envy Blend and Signature Bourbon Cocktail, Lucifer’s Addiction

Lou’s Beer Garden, located at 7337 Harding Avenue, is thrilled to announce the launch of LOU’S BEER GARDEN SPECIAL BLEND of ANGEL’S ENVY BOURBON. The launch event will be Lou PressSaturday, September 27 from 8pm to 11pm and will unveil the much anticipated and exclusive LBG Bourbon to all of Miami with complimentary LBG Angel’s Envy Bourbon Tastings and Bourbon Cocktails, most notably the Signature libation, Lucifer’s Addiction. Acclaimed DJ Dusseldorf Wegs will provide the Musical vibe for the night and the Angel’s Envy ANGELS will meet and greet the crowd. Bottle Raffles and Lucifer’s Addiction T-shirt Raffles will fill the night.

Rooted in 200 years of Bourbon heritage, Angel’s Envy creates artisan, hand-finished spirits that are inspired by legendary Master Distiller Lincoln Henderson’s lifetime of crafting fine spirits with Angel’s Envy as the masterpiece. During the barrel aging process, 5% of the spirit is lost each year and is called the “Angel’s Share”. After tasting the first batch of bourbon finished in ruby port casks, Lincoln joked that they finally got a better deal than the angels. And so Angel’s Envy was born. Subsequently, it was named “Best Spirit in the World – #1 Tie” by Spirit Journal in June 2013.

Lou’s Beer Garden has had a love affair with Angel’s Envy Bourbon since it was born and use it judiciously in many of it’s bourbon tastings and bourbon cocktails, most distinctly Lucifer’s Addiction and it’s famous Manhattan, both of which patrons can sample at the Launch Party. When Angel’s Envy approached Lou to produce it’s own special blend created from samples of three Angel’s Envy batches selected by Lincoln and blended to the specifications of Lou’s Beer Garden VIP Tasting Panel, Lou was very honored and jumped at the chance to create the LBG Signature blend. The end result is a rich, exceptionally smooth and rare bourbon for sipping in a snifter or mixed in a cocktail. Each bottle is uniquely labeled with the batch number, bottle number and the blend percentages.

“The Angels may have gotten their share, Mr. Henderson may have gotten the best part of the deal, but I think that creating such an addictive libation is the best part of it all”, states Lou Owner and Executive Chef of Lou’s Beer Garden.

The Lou’s Beer Garden Launch Party of its exclusive Blend of Angel’s Envy Bourbon is a free community event produced by Lou’s Beer Garden Owners Ann Castellano and Lou Ramirez. For more information, please visit the Lou’s Beer Garden website http://www.lousbeergarden.com.
