Flaming Leprechaun is an exciting new line of premium distilled spirits
imported directly from Ireland. Launched in Massachusetts in October of
2016, the brand is planning continued expansion throughout the United
States over the next two years. Flaming Leprechaun is deeply rooted in
traditional Irish heritage and culture, offers US consumers top quality
spirits with award-winning taste that captures all the fun of St.
Patrick’s Day in every bottle. Their premium products include a Special
Reserve Blended Irish Whiskey (92 proof), Limestone Filtered Celtic Gin
(88 proof), Limestone Filtered Vodka (80 proof), a Triple Distilled Rum
(80 proof), and of course their extremely popular Fiery Irish Cinnamon
Spirit (70 proof).

Flaming Leprechaun is already a huge hit in Massachusetts after
receiving very impressive advance reviews in many of the major spirits
publications. The brand had a phenomenal showing at the 2016 San
Francisco World Spirits Competition, where Flaming Leprechaun earned a
grand total of five medals (one for each of their products) including a
pair of “Double Gold” medals won in the Vodka and Gin Categories. Most
recently Flaming Leprechaun Special Reserve Irish Whiskey was recognized
with a ranking of 93, by a Tasting Panel Magazine review which appears
in the 2016 September issue.

“After an extremely successful launch in Massachusetts, it’s a natural
choice that Rhode Island becomes the next New England state that we’ll
expand to,” said Jack Walsh, the Managing General Partner of 3 Hearts of
Ireland. “We can’t think of a better partner in the Ocean State than
Rhode Island Distributing. Their knowledge and experience in the state
is second to none, and we’re excited to be partnering with them as
they’ll help us grow the Flaming Leprechaun Brand Name throughout Rhode
Island and across New England.”

Flaming Leprechaun is NEW and UNIQUE – a distinctively Irish brand that
offers a top quality alternative for the millennial palate at a
highly-competitive price. The best ingredients, Irish Spring Water and a
special limestone filtration process all combine to create something
truly special. Every bottle is produced and packaged to the highest
standards before being imported directly from Ireland. No propylene
glycol whatsoever is used in any Flaming Leprechaun products.

“We couldn’t be more thrilled to be the exclusive Flaming Leprechaun
distributor in Rhode Island,” said Joe Morenzi, General Manager, Rhode
Island Distributing. “Their award-winning line of spirits ranging from
their Fiery Cinnamon Whiskey, Irish Whiskey, Vodka, Celtic Gin, and
Triple Distilled Rum will be outstanding products that we can now offer
to all of our customers starting in March.”

Each product is symbolized by the Emerald Isle’s most endearing mystical
creature; the Leprechaun. King Ultan (Irish Whiskey), Fintan (Fiery
Cinnamon), Lorcan (Vodka), Ronan (Gin) and Brendan (Rum) are the
“Leprechauns behind the spirits.” The story and distinct personality of
each Leprechaun is told through a series of original poems on the back
label of every bottle.

In addition to spending many years refining production methods and
quality, Flaming Leprechaun has a daily presence on all of the major
social media platforms, and are rapidly building a growing and loyal
following both on-line and in person. Flaming Leprechaun is also growing
its marketing footprint as well as the brand is the presenting sponsor
