On a summer day in Helmand Province, Afghanistan (2011), Have A Shot Of Freedom Whiskey Co. was born. The Marines of Alpha Battery, 1st Battalion, 10th Marines engaged enemy forces with a barrage of artillery shells. Marines moved tirelessly to reload cannons as steel rain poured down over the mountain tops. Through the booming of the howitzers, the units Senior Staff NCO shouted, "Marines, enjoy this day! For those who fight to protect it, Freedom has a flavor the protected will never know!" HASOF Whiskey Co. exists to harness that flavor into each bottle of bourbon, paying homage to those who served, while honoring the individuals who have toiled to make America great.
Now if that story isn't enough to make you go out and Have A Shot of Freedom, then you don't have a pulse! All motivation aside, that moment in Afghanistan would be for not if wasn't for HASOF Whiskey Co. military veteran founder's Zach Hollingsworth (U.S. Marine Corps) and Scott Brown's (U.S. Air Force) habit for back porch drinking and telling war stories.
After many nights of toasting Freedom the two decided it was time to take the risk to create a bourbon that truly embodied the American Spirit. Following months of research, the pair linked up with an up and coming distillery out of Spring Valley, California to create their signature Small Batch Bourbon. With the hard part in the bag, it was time to turn to marketing. Zach had the perfect person in mind, his good friend Giev Fowler.
