BLOOMINGTON -

Products from a Bloomington-based craft distillery will soon be available throughout the state. Cardinal Spirits will hit shelves at Meijer stores, beginning Wednesday.

The retail chain will carry Cardinal Spirits Vodka, Standard Dry Gin and Bramble Vodka. The products will roll out to most of Meijer's 35 Indiana locations over the next month.

"We're thrilled that Meijer recognizes the importance of selling Indiana-made craft spirits, which its customers clearly want," says Jeff Wuslich, Cardinal Spirits co-founder. "This is a win for Cardinal Spirits, but the big picture is that locally and thoughtfully made craft spirits are easier than ever to come by. We're proud to be a part of that."

The company says it is one of the first Indiana craft distilleries to retail at Meijer. Cardinal Spirits opened in February 2015 and its products are also available at other major retailers, including Kroger, Big Red Liquors and Crown Liquors.
