INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Inside INdiana Business) – Craft distillery West Fork Whiskey Co. and Sun King Spirits, both based in Indianapolis, are collaborating to produce Sun King Vodka. Sun King says limited production capacity led it to seek a collaboration with West Fork, and the partnership will give the limited-release, small-batch vodka a larger audience.

The partners say the handcrafted vodka will be available beginning Friday at Sun King tap rooms in downtown Indianapolis, Broad Ripple, Fishers and Carmel.

“We developed Sun King Spirits in Carmel to produce a finite amount of spirits, but as our program has grown, we simply don’t have the capacity to produce vodka,” said Clay Robinson, co-founder of Sun King Brewery. “This presented a great opportunity for us to partner with our good friends at West Fork to create a unique product that both of our fans could enjoy.”

Sun King says it has been working with West Fork Whiskey for more than a year on several other beer-related projects.

“While we’re focused on our whiskey portfolio and other projects coming down the pipeline, we are excited to branch out and help local businesses in their endeavors,” said Blake Jones, co-founder of West Fork Whiskey Co. “This collaboration allows us to share our passion for our community and do what we love best – bring people together through good spirits and goodwill.”

The newly-introduced 80 proof Sun King Vodka is being produced at West Fork Whiskey.
