Santa's fav

Only ever seen in asda not sure on current price. Delicious with apple juice :-)

Try fire eater as a cheaper good alternative. tried both and think fire eater good comparison and 70cl is £14 at asda.

Damn

Just received an order for 70cl bottle but cost me £21.
Love the stuff

Sorry but fireater is no comparison to fireball personally. Fireater not enough cinnamon for my taste

I've seen it in tesco for £11 not sure of size though, I will try it one day lol

Drank this in vegas first time I've saw it in the uk

50 cl in East Kilbride tesco but was unpriced. I had Jim Bean Fire in the USA and it was fantastic haven't seen it here though.

Sainsbury also do this one 70cl for £14 which is nice as well.

This is nice. Now I infuse my own fireballs. Very easy to do, just add honey, cinnamon sticks, cloves and half a hot chilli pepper to a standard bottle whiskey. Give it a shake every other day for a few weeks, and hey ho, you have it. Also have a nice glass of whiskey before you do this, to make room for the honey

I usually get some from Bookers cash & carry. Can't recall the price though.

great deal for a great bottle of spirit i keep being told to try with apple juice etc but its just too nice on its own! and a little like pringles once ya pop you cant stop

wasn't this withdrawn from sale as it had antifreeze in it?

I thought this was withdrawn across Europe due to it containing antifreeze (ethylene glycol)?

This sounds good and I quite fancy giving it a go, would you care to be a touch more specific with the ingredients? You've probably perfected your method so how many cloves / cinnamon sticks and honey do you use? A friend had a bottle of this fireball and it's good stuff, but there's always something a little more satisfying about personalised or home-made stuff.

Had this in nyc and loved it. Was taken off uk shelves as it contained anti freeze, apparently legal in the US! Make sure you buy from a reputable retailer. Unless, of course, like me you like the US version...

Sure my friend, the whisky does not need to be of great quality, so ie, Bells blended, which is usually on offer say 1ltr or perhaps Grants 70cl, so, firstly take out enough whisky to replenish with clear honey.... about 6 tablespoons, then add the clear honey. Cinnamon sticks (the short ones) add about 5 or 6. You, don't need to add cloves, however, I like to in the Winter, so if you do, add about 5 or 6 whole cloves. To give the 'heat' add half a hot chilli pepper. A fresh one, not the ones in a jar with vinegar. Remove the seeds if you don't want your whisky to be too fiery, otherwise, add them in if you like more 'heat'. If you prefer a much sweeter blend, then add more honey. Give the bottle a shake every other day, the flavours soon develop within three weeks.After a month or so, the infusion becomes stronger. then you can remove the chilli. The cinnamon and cloves, remain at the bottom of the bottle, the honey dissolves as soon as you add it and shake it. Google... alcohol spirits infusions, for more info.

Love this. Thanks for posting.

nice find

Great

This is definitely the best! Absolutely love it!

It is back and it didn't contain antifreeze.

What happened is that a shipment that was meant for the US was shipped to Europe. Both safe to drink, but there are different regulations in both regions. It was pulled from the UK purely because of this reason until they had a new shipment.

Its so easy to drink, me and my uncle finished a whole bottle between us within an hour (_;) i bought it from Amazon a while back, it was £11 on there too. Heat added.

I fancy trying this. Fireball or fire eater one though?

Bought in Livingston thanks OP

We drink it with apple cider, a nice refreshing drink with a bite.
