According to the Bangor Daily News, Boston Brands of Maine, the company that produces Fireball Cinnamon Whisky, is adding 46 new jobs to their Lewiston factory.

The need for additional employees comes after a $4 million expansion to the company's Saratoga Street (Lewiston) bottling plan.

These 46 full-time employees, who are joining the 169 people currently employed by the plant, will allow the plant to operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

By making the move to operate 24/7, the plant will increase production by 20%.

The company declined to comment on whether or not the planned increases were a result of the liquor's increased popularity in New England.  Fireball has just surpassed Allen's Coffee Brandy as the best-selling liquor in Maine.
