Local distiller honors veterans with new bottle to be sold nationwide

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- It's the ultimate way to pay it forward for our country's bravest men and women.

Every hero has a story and a local distiller is making sure those stories are told.

Adam Popp was wounded in Afghanistan when disarming an enemy explosive device.

During his 18-month recovery, he pledged to help other veterans.

Saturday, Evan Williams recognized him as a true American hero, and recognized his bravery with a special red, white, and blue bottle to be sold nationwide.

The limited edition bottles will be available exclusively during the month of May for Memorial Day and extending through July 4.

Six veterans are honored every year, and $10,000  is given to that veteran's favorite charity.
