L. Gale Lemerand Entrepreneurial Speaker Series
Co-Founder & Chief Innovation Officer Angel’s Envy
Wes Henderson’s vision to create a one-of-a-kind distilled spirit with his
father introduced the world to Angel’s Envy whiskey. His son, Kyle, would
later join them, making Angel’s Envy the work of three generations of
Henderson’s. Today, that same vision continues, with Wes shepherding
the company’s growth and crafting some of the finest, award-winning
whiskeys in the world.
Since Angel’s Envy’s launch, Wes has served as a tireless ambassador for
the fledgling brand, forging personal connections with both fans and folks
new to whiskey all across the country. While he has many other roles and
responsibilities, his ability to share his love for his work over a glass of
Angel’s Envy can never be understated.
Before co-founding Angel’s Envy, Wes was the CEO for Master Distilling
Select, as well as the president and CEO of Conecuh Ridge Distillery, the
producer of Clyde May’s Whiskey.
He also serves his community as a volunteer firefighter, and is a licensed
pilot specializing in search and rescue. Wes is a devoted husband and
father of six boys. His proudest achievement has been building a distilling
legacy for his family. Three generations may have launched Angel’s Envy, but Wes is always looking to the future.
