The Non-Alcoholic Nature of Fireball Whiskey

Fireball is a cinnamon-flavored whiskey that conains only 33% by volume, compared to the usual 40-60% ABV of regular whiskey. This lower alcohol content means that it takes more Fireball than normal whiskey to get you drunk. The main ingredient in Fireball, other than the cinnamon flavor, is neutral grain , which are grain-based ethanol that has been distilled and purified. As a result, Fireball has a much lower concentration of alcohol than other whiskeys and requires more consumption for the same effect. Additionally, it can take longer for you to feel the effects of Fireball because its low ABV makes it relatively easy for your body to metabolize the alcohol.
