From The Lane Report:

SOMERSET, Ky. — Horse Solider Bourbon recently passed another significant mile-marker: the selection and formation of an award-winning team to design and develop a world-class distillery experience in Somerset and Pulaski County.

The ultra-premium bourbon brand—which was founded by retired members of the U.S. Special Forces, who were the first to enter Afghanistan, following 9/11—completed a comprehensive selection process, en route to forming an integrated team of industry leaders with a global footprint and portfolio ranging from the United Kingdom to Kentucky. Entering Q3, Horse Soldier Bourbon now has its sights firmly set on the next target: Phase 1.

Another Step Closer
In December 2019, Horse Soldier Bourbon formally announced plans to purchase land and build a world-class distillery experience in Somerset and Pulaski County. The retired Green Berets—who were training along the Cumberland River, when the towers fell on 9/11—viewed their 2020 expansion as a return to familiar surroundings and a place they once called home.

“We are committed to doing everything at the highest level,” said co-founder John Koko. “We adhere to tradition, but we understand the importance of innovation. This requires working with the right people, in the right place, at the right time. We don’t believe in settling.”

Horse Soldier’s commitment to excellence is reflected in the award-winning group chosen to spearhead its expansion. This unique team brings the collective experience required to create a world-class distillery and guest experience for Horse Soldier Bourbon and Somerset.
