West Fork Whiskey for Caroline Vodka
West Fork Whiskey Co., an Indianapolis-based craft whiskey distillery and our Endowment announced, in early 2020, a new way to fight cancer. Together we have created a vodka with the proceeds directly supporting pediatric cancer research in central Indiana. The vodka, dubbed ‘For Caroline; A Vodka with a Purpose’, was created to financially support the Endowment in perpetuity. The concept is simple, West Fork Whiskey will donate the net proceeds of each bottle sold back to the Caroline Symmes Children’s Cancer Endowment. The vodka hit store shelves at Crown Liquors throughout central Indiana a few months ago, and we are now hoping to distribute it to other local retailers. “When our distillery realized we couldn’t give large chunks of money back to organizations we are passionate about, we looked for ways we could be more impactful. So, instead of large chunks of money, we decided to use our supply chain to create a product that could support a great cause forever. Our hope is that in time, we will be able to give back way more money than a single donation while continuing to raise awareness for this very worthy cause.” Said Blake Jones, Co-Founder & President of West Fork Whiskey Co.
