Horse Soldier Bourbon Whiskey

Colloquially called the Quiet Professionals, Soldier-Diplomats, Snake Eaters, and Bearded Bastards, the most frequent parlance for a member of the United States Army’s most elite group is Green Beret. Horse Soldier bourbon is made by American Freedom Distillery, which is owned and operated by 12 brave US Army Green Berets. Green Berets are iron-willed and filled with patriotic spirit, and the same can be said of Horse Soldier bourbon.

This whiskey was first crafted as a tribute to the men who fought in Northern Afghanistan following the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. Ninety-five proof to honor their Special Forces Team Number, Horse Soldier bourbon carries a robust and strong flavor, made by the Bearded Bastards themselves. American Freedom Distillery has recently released a special edition version of their Horse Soldier, to honor those who died in the Twin Towers attacks, and the soldiers that fought for them overseas. The bottle comes swathed in a case made from the metal rubble of Ground Zero, reforged to represent an enduring spirit. Proceeds from the sales of this limited-run bourbon will go toward the maintenance of the America’s Response Monument, also called the Horse Soldier Statue, along with several other veteran’s aid programs.
