By Allyson Nichols / June 19, 2021

West Fork Whiskey Co. out of Indiana recently announced the release of a new bourbon peach tea ready-to-drink cocktail.

Cold Hamer Bourbon Peach Tea is the third in the Cold Hamer ready-to-drink lineup, in addition to the current High Ball and Snapback offerings. All are lower-calorie options with all-natural ingredients at 7% ABV. West Fork is the only Indiana-based distillery to offer bourbon canned cocktails, and just one of a handful of options available nationwide.

“With everyone out and about again, enjoying summer parties and gatherings, our Cold Hamer Bourbon Peach Tea canned cocktail is the perfect way to easily enjoy and share our craft cocktails,” Co-owner of West Fork Whiskey Co. Blake Jones said in a prepared statement. “The natural ingredients and simple mixture offers a delicious and lighter alternative to other canned cocktails on the market, and we’re thrilled to share it with everyone this summer.”

Established in 2015, West Fork Whiskey Co. distills and produces craft whiskeys, always using 100% Indiana ingredients, grain to glass. The Indianapolis tasting room and distillery is open six days a week offering a full cocktail menu, bottle carryout, tours, and special events. In 2020, both Cold Hamer High Ball and Cold Hamer Snapback received SIP Awards in the World Spirits Competition.
