Horse Soldier Straight Bourbon Whiskey this classic recipe of authentic bourbon is made with corn, rye and malted barley. This all-natural, all-American product won Double Gold at the 2019 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. It is a balanced and robust bourbon whiskey that’s aged between 3-5 years to ensure its distinctive, mellow character. Horse Soldier® Bourbon Whiskey is crafted by the U.S. Army Green Berets who answered America’s call days after 9/11 with a daring insertion, on horseback, into northern Afghanistan. This brave and unconventional act earned them the moniker of “Horse Soldiers”. Our team has been featured in the Hollywood movie 12 Strong, the CNN documentary Legion of Brothers, and memorialized by America’s Response Monument located at Ground Zero in New York City. The Horse Soldier® glass bottle is molded by steel recovered from the World Trade Center to commemorate the lives lost and never forgotten.
LEGENDARY MEN, LEGENDARY SPIRITS Much of our brotherhood was forged in fire during the first days after the 9/11 attacks. Immediately following this affront on our nation, the USA responded with a daring insertion of small teams of Green Berets into northern Afghanistan. The Northern Alliance successfully overthrew Mazar-i-Sharif, a Taliban stronghold, with the support of these brave men. This region’s inhospitable, mountainous terrain made efforts and enemy engagements on wild Afghan horses a necessity for one Special Operations team (ODA595). Nicknamed the “Horse Soldiers”, all these brave men are honored today by America’s Response Monument overlooking “Ground Zero” in New York City.
We make history and continue to live legendary lives by instilling family values, adventurous spirits, and pride into Horse Soldier Bourbon Whiskey.
