Cinerator 750mlBARDSTOWN, Ky. – Heaven Hill Distilleries, Inc. will launch Cinerator Hot Cinnamon Flavored Whiskey in May. This growing segment of the liqueur category has been stoked by consumers’ interest in all things spicy and hot. Cinerator fuses hot cinnamon flavor with the smoothness of American Whiskey in a 91.1 proof liqueur. Served as a chilled shot or mixed, the growing sub-category of spicy and hot products has set the industry aflame.

Cinerator adds a dramatic look and added kick at 91.1 proof to this highly sought after segment of liqueurs. Consumers will be drawn to the stand out look of a red hot label set ablaze by flames and packaging which is a clear and modern representation of the product attributes.  Available both on-premise and at retail and with an approachable price point, the result is a new product with just the right amount of attitude at a time when flavors, specifically flavored whiskeys, are on fire.

“Flavor innovation across all categories is at a fever pitch,” said Hannah Venhoff, Brand Manager for Cinerator Hot Cinnamon Flavored Whiskey. “Bold and exciting whiskey flavors, in particular, are some of the strongest new products in the market with total volume now exceeding 1,000,000 cases.  Cinerator will be a tremendous new addition to that growing category. The brand has a great look and fiery essence captured in an array of branded POS.”

The brand will be supported with POS featuring the headline “Some Like It Shot” that includes a subtle “So Hot” reference, as well. The eye-catching positioning challenges consumers and invites them to enjoy a unique whiskey experience.

Cinerator Hot Cinnamon Flavored Whiskey is available nationally in 1L, 750ml and 50ml sizes at 45.55% alc./vol. (91.1 proof). The suggested retail price is $14.99 for a 750ml.
