This week The Pack is joined by retired Special Forces (Green Beret) Master Sergeant Scott Neil, the COO of Horse Soldier Bourbon (on Twitter @HorseSoldierUSA). We talk about his military career and his other endeavors up to his co-founding of Horse Soldier Bourbon.
Scott was among the first to deploy after 9/11, and his exploits were featured in the blockbuster Hollywood movie ‘12 Strong’. After retirement, Scott wanted to help veterans and so oversaw and started several organizations dedicated to our Nation’s service members and veterans.
Later, a personal vision-quest took him on a world tour of whiskey distilleries. With some of the members of his former Special Forces A-Team, they decided to found Horse Soldier Bourbon. The process to start their own distillery was almost as difficult for them as when together they overthrew the Taliban from the backs of donkeys.
Sit back, listen and savor your Commander Selection, neat.
