“We are so excited to bring our fans in the U.K. and European markets more ways to enjoy Fireball Whisky and Southern Comfort,” says Patrice Paglia, licensing manager, Sazerac. “These brands are exploding in popularity, and we know that licensees are ready to tap into that energy and momentum.”

“We cannot wait to get started disrupting the market with products that will deepen Fireball Whisky and Southern Comfort’s relationship with its current and future fans,” says Niadna. “When it comes to food, Southern Comfort has all the ingredients needed for success – great distinctive flavors and amazing graphics – and we are poised to find partners and collaborators to help us launch an elevated lifestyle apparel program for both brands as well.”
