Officials will break ground today on a 12-acre agritourism facility in Westfield, which will include a distillery. Indianapolis based-West Fork Whiskey Co. announced plans last year for the $10 million development near Grand Park Sports Campus in Westfield.
The craft whiskey distiller says the 35,000-square-foot complex will include a 5,000 square-foot event space, retail store, a 4,000 square-foot restaurant with a cocktail lounge, a speakeasy, and additional production space.
West Fork says its restaurant will highlight Hoosier agriculture, flavors and artisanal products. They plan to hire more than 50 people over the next two years for the new operation.
The new facility marks the company’s second location after opening a downtown Indianapolis tasting room in 2017.
