SUMMARY: Horse Soldier Farms, the home of production for Horse Soldier Bourbon, a bourbon brand made by former Green Berets who went into Afghanistan on horseback following the events of 9-11, many of whom are from Kentucky, is now underway and slated for completion in 2024. Horse Soldier Farms will be much more than a distillery, with proposed retired horse farm, family friendly activities, retail-like shopping and eateries, the project is much more than just a bourbon tasting experience, it's a destination.
