Angel’s Share

Angel’s Share: As the whisky ages a small percentage of alcohol evaporates, thus lowering the spirit’s abv. In Scotland this accounts for a loss of approximately 2% per annum, though the angels’ greed is heightened in warmer climes and this rate can increase; in India the angel’s share can account for a loss of as much as 12% abv per annum.
