The bourbon tourism and expansion boom continues in Louisville with the official opening of Brough Brothers Bourbon, plus major expansion for Angel’s Envy.
Brough Brothers Bourbon
Now officially open to the public, this 22,000 square-foot facility features a gift shop, distillery and tasting room in Louisville’s Park Hill neighborhood.
The brand first 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 culture and icons with basketball, boxing, horse racing and Louisville’s skyline.
A Louisville-based craft distiller since 2016, Angel’s Envy recently unveiled the details of its upcoming $8.2M expansion.
The project 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.
Specific additions to the distillery experience 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 Angel’s Envy “Bottle Your Own” experience.
Angel’s Envy distillery will remain open to the public throughout the construction process.
