EOP collaborates with world renowned architects Rogers, Stirk, Harbour + Partners and BRC Imagination Arts to build Horse Soldier Bourbon Distillery and Visitor Experience

SOMERSET, Ky., October 19, 2021 — With no signs of Kentucky’s Bourbon industry slowing, Horse Soldier Bourbon comes home to Kentucky, building a brand new bourbon production distillery and visitor experience. Horse Soldier Farms, from Horse Soldier Bourbon, the brand made by former Green Berets who were the first American Forces to go into Afghanistan following the events of 9-11, at times operating on horseback, is now underway and slated for completion in 2024. Horse Soldier Farms will be much more than a distillery.  This will provide a truly legendary tourist destination with world-class amenities and attractions for everyone.


EOP is proud to be in collaboration with world-renowned architects, Rogers, Stirk, Harbours + Partners, and experience designers, BRC Imagination Arts, and a host of expert consultants to create a Bourbon Distillery & Visitor experience like no other. EOP will be the prime and local architect, while RSHP will be acting in a design consultant capacity.


Kentucky’s amber wave of bourbon tourism has swelled to a 370% increase in attendance over the last 10 years—on pace for the $10 billion projected in economic output. As the new southern anchor on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail, Horse Soldier Bourbon is set to become the anchor, holding down the proverbial fort on the south side of the Bourbon Trail.
