Last Friday evening SOFREP hosted its first virtual whiskey event with Angel’s Envy, the Kentucky brand that’s making waves across the bourbon scene. The event garnered a lot of attention from SOFREP readers with the 100 virtual seats for the event filling up in a matter of hours and leading to a waitlist of another 100 guests. 

Kicking off at 9 p.m. EST, the event covered the history of the brand, a guide to tasting bourbon, glassware recommendations, and even suggestions for bourbon-based cocktails. 

The event was led by Angel’s Envy ambassador and NYC bartender extraordinaire Chris Corbin. Originally from San Diego, Chris got his first bartending job in Dublin, Ireland in 2000. There he learned the traditions of the job from some of the best. He has bartended across three continents (Europe, Oceania, and North America), and he’s been in New York for 11 years.
