There is something incredibly unique and fall-like about our Cinnamon Whisky Liqueur (aka Fireshine). Exceptionally good mixed with things meant to warm your soul. Like hot chai.⁠ ⁠This super special, easy-to-make warm cocktail is just that.

3/4 full mug of steamed/hot milk⁠
Steep chai tea in milk for 5-10 minutes⁠
1 1/2 oz J56 Cinnamon Liqueur

Our Cinnamon Liqueur is achieved by steeping a locally-sourced hot cinnamon spice tea blend directly in whisky for several days. The end result is a slightly sweet cinnamon liqueur that is brimming with complexity. This is a product in partnership with Stratford Tea Leaves, Canada’s leading purveyor of fine loose-leaf teas. The cinnamon tea blend was designed by Karen Hartwick, Canada’s premier tea sommelier.⁠
