The Story Behind Horse Soldier Reserve Bourbon
Horse Soldier Reserve Bourbon is more than just a drink; it’s a symbol of bravery and resilience. In the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, small teams of Green Berets, known as the “Horse Soldiers,” were deployed to northern Afghanistan. Their daring mission alongside the Northern Alliance led to the successful overthrow of a Taliban stronghold. Today, these courageous men are honored by America’s Response Monument overlooking “Ground Zero” in New York City. The Horse Soldier Reserve Bourbon bottles even contain steel from the World Trade Center, a poignant reminder of their sacrifice.
