Hood River Distillers, Inc.® Launches SinFire™ Cinnamon Whisky

Tapping into the growing trend of flavored whisky, Hood River Distillers, Inc. announced today the launch of SinFire™ Cinnamon Whisky.

Playing up the cinnamon flavor and the sinful and fiery nature of the spirit, the “SinFire” name instantly lets the drinker know they are in store for a unique, sweet yet sizzling experience.

“Flavored whisky continues to be a growing category in the spirits market, and our experience and success with Canadian whiskies makes this a natural endeavor for us,” said Ronald Dodge, Hood River Distillers president and CEO. “With the development of SinFire Cinnamon Whisky, our goal is to offer our distributors, on and off-premise partners a great-tasting, flavored whisky, at a great value.”

Targeting men and women ages 21-40, SinFire Cinnamon Whisky combines the smooth, rich notes of a good, balanced whisky and warm, spicy-sweet cinnamon flavors. The distinctive flavor has limitless serving options, served chilled for a zesty summer cocktail or warm offering the perfect way to heat up a cold winter day. SinFire Cinnamon Whisky is great served straight up or on the rocks, but also lends itself to both new and classic whisky cocktail recipes for a truly invigorating tasting experience.

Available for national distribution in February 2012, SinFire Cinnamon Whisky will retail for approximately $16.99 (750 ml). For more information about the product or how to purchase SinFire Cinnamon Whisky, visit www.hrdspirits.com <http://www.hrdspirits.com/>  or email hrdsales@hrdspirits.com.
