Horse Soldier Bourbon Whiskey is crafted by a group of ex-Special Forces vets from Operational Detachment Alpha Team 595 – nicknamed the “Horse Soldiers”. After sticking together through thick and thick, the group of friends got together nearly 20 years after their military service and continued their service in a different way: this time, by making award-winning all-natural, all-American Bourbon at their American Freedom Distillery.

Horse Soldier 12 Year Old is their most special, premium offering: it’s crafted from the oldest barrels in their signature Reserve collection. The mash bill of corn, rye, and malted barley was aged for a magic number of 12 years in new American White Oak before it was bottled at 48.5% ABV. It immediately won Double Gold at the 2019 San Fran Spirits Competition. 1 of 1,000 bottles.

Bourbons have very prominent notes of vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
Sure, Kentucky gets all the press when it comes to Bourbon. And with good reason—nearly 95% of it is produced there. But Bourbon can be made anywhere as long as it's within the United States. Just ask states with budding distilleries like Illinois and New York.
At any given time, there are more barrels of Bourbon in Kentucky than there are people. The population of the Bluegrass State is about 4.4 million. Today there are more than 5 million barrels of Bourbon sitting in the rick-houses of that Old Kentucky Home. That’s nearly 300 bottles of Bourbon per person, or about 60 gallons each.
Straight Bourbon must be matured for at least 2 years. If a bottle has no age statement, it’s at least 4 years old.
Bourbon rules refer to manufacturing methods rather than location. Bourbon must be matured in new and charred American white oak casks for at least 2 years. If the bottle has no age statement, the Bourbon is at least 4 years old. No coloring or flavoring of any type is allowed, and the mash bill must contain at least 51% corn.
"Remember that iconic poster from World War II showing Rosie the Riveter as a patriotic American woman doing her part for the war effort? Well, hundreds of businesses did their part too, and the Bourbon distillers stepped right up with ‘em.

Distilleries all over Kentucky and Tennessee were re-tooled to distill fuel alcohol and ferment penicillin cultures to treat wounded soldiers."
