Fireball is a Canadian whisky-based cinnamon-flavoured liqueur produced by the Sazerac Company. The product was developed in Canada in the mid-1980s, forged during one of the coldest Canadian winters on record by blending smooth Canadian whisky with sweet, spicy cinnamon. Fireball has blazed a trail of success across America before the flames leapt over to UK shores and is one of the world’s fastest growing spirit brands. Best served straight from the freezer as a shot - it delivers a taste like no other.
Fireball is loud, uncompromising and relentless. And it’s coming for you.
