General Questions

Fireball comes straight from our Dragon Slayer hearts. And those hearts happen to reside in the US and Canada.

Fireball Cinnamon Whisky traces its roots back to the cold land of Canada, where “whisky” is spelled without the letter E and people ride “toboggans” instead of sleds. Strange place.

In order to make enough Fireball for you fine people, we have to work nonstop at multiple distilleries. But sorry, no tours available. May we instead suggest you follow and play with us on social?

Fireball flows around the world. If you’re in the USA, it’s probably very close by at a bottle shop. If you’re outside of the USA, view our list of international distributors (https://fireballwhisky.com/distributors/) . Happy hunting!

We would love to sell Fireball straight to consumers from our homepage — in fact, we were planning on having it shoot straight out of your computer screen. However, due to industry regulations we can’t sell directly to consumers. Luckily, a number of online retailers do, including the folks over at Drizly and Reserve Bar. Check ’em out!

We see you’ve discovered the Firebox – our dispenser that holds two 1.75 Liter pouches of Fireball. This is currently a limited release in late Summer / early Fall. If you find one in the wild, consider yourself lucky and be sure to share it on our social media pages!

Different states have different regulations and we highly recommend that you move to a state that embraces Fireball in all shapes and sizes. That or write your state representative. Tell 'em the Dragon sent you.

Ingredients

You’re damn right! We use real, natural cinnamon to create our whisky — any details beyond that are too secret to share, but nice try.

While Fireball is not made with nuts or peanuts, note that it may be produced in a facility with milk, peanuts, tree nuts, and wheat. We recommend you discuss the suitability of Fireball with your physician prior to consumption.

Our Fireball Whisky’s proof makes it perfect to store and pour straight from the average freezer. You’d have to drop the temperature to about -12 degrees Fahrenheit to get our whisky to ice up. It's called science.

Fireball is 100% safe to drink. Fireball does not contain any antifreeze at all, and the suggestion is ridiculous. Sadly, this is the media’s way of crafting attention grabbing headlines, but it simply is not true. We would not dream of putting antifreeze in our product. Want to know more?

All versions of Fireball, both in the U.S. and the rest of the world, are 100% PG (propylene glycol) free. As part of our work on the shelf stability and given the nature of the natural ingredients we use, we updated the shelf stability part of the formula for Fireball some time ago; this updated formula does not use PG. While the former formula was fully compliant and perfectly safe to drink, we, as a company, are continually working to improve all of our products.

We can now offer Fireball Whisky 42 Proof in approximately 6,000 more stores in Ohio.

Fireball Whisky 42 Proof is a 42 proof (21% ABV) version of our original 66 proof (33% ABV) Fireball Whisky – it offers the taste experience our Fireball fans love with a lower alcohol content. 

No, absolutely not. The Fireball 42 proof is an additional offering to our original 66 Proof (33% ABV) Fireball Whisky which continues to be available in bars, restaurants, and liquor stores across the country.

Fireball Cinnamon

Over the years, we have received feedback from consumers wanting to purchase Fireball in a wider variety of convenient shopping locations, including stores that can only sell beer, malt beverages and wine products.  In order to meet this demand, we developed an excellent Fireball Cinnamon malt beverage product that is made using our proprietary recipe, capturing the essence of the Fireball taste experience consumers love.  We can now offer Fireball in approximately 170,000 stores in the U.S. that can only sell beer, malt beverages and wine products, but not whisky.

Fireball Cinnamon is a malt beverage product that is made using our proprietary recipe, capturing the essence of the Fireball taste experience consumers love.

There are 2 key differences of the Fireball Cinnamon label vs Fireball Whisky label:

  • Any package with Fireball ‘Cinnamon Whisky’ & ‘66 proof’ on the front label is our whisky-based product
  • Any product with Fireball ‘Cinnamon’ and ’33 proof’ on the front label is our malt beverage product

Fireball Cinnamon is 33 proof (16.5% alcohol by volume) whereas Fireball Whisky is 66 proof (33% alcohol by volume). Fireball Cinnamon contains less alcohol than Fireball Whisky. This offers our fans an option to enjoy the great Fireball taste at a lower alcohol strength.

Unlike Fireball Whisky, Fireball Cinnamon can be sold in beer, malt beverage and wine stores for our fans who want a wider variety of convenient shopping locations.  However, many states have laws that prohibit malt beverage products being sold above a certain alcohol content.  We chose an alcohol content that would allow us to provide our fans with as many additional shopping locations as possible.

The exact freezing point of alcoholic beverages is dependent on its proof, or alcohol by volume. The lower the proof, the warmer the freezing point.  Fireball Cinnamon contains less alcohol than Fireball Whisky, so it will likely freeze when placed in a standard home freezer set to 0°F. 

No, absolutely not.  Fireball Whisky continues to be available in bars, restaurants, and liquor stores across the country. Fireball Cinnamon is an additional offering in our lineup.
