Executive chef Kenneth Tufo has had a 20-year culinary career and has cooked in cities like New York, Boston and, now, St. Petersburg. Horse Soldier Bourbon was created by a group of friends who served in the U.S. Army. Days after 9/11, a small group of Army Special Forces entered Afghanistan on horseback, the first time since World War II. The group of 12 Green Berets from the 5th Special Forces Group later became known as the Horse Soldiers.
Their story was told in the Hollywood film, 12 Strong, released in 2018, and a documentary titled Legion of Brothers, released in 2017. In 2011, a statue commemorating the historic mission, called America’s Response, was unveiled at ground zero in New York. Horse Soldier bourbon’s bottles are pressed by a mold forged from the World Trade Center steel.
