History & Heritage
Baileys has been a pioneer in the cream liqueur category since it was created in 1974 and proudly leads it to this day.
The Baileys story began in Dublin when a team of experts set out on a mission to craft an unashamedly delicious blend of two of Ireland’s most delicious ingredients – rich dairy cream and the finest whiskey.
It took them over two years, but finally they had a breakthrough and managed to get these two unlikely partners to come together, resulting in the luxurious indulgent liquid we know and love across the world today.
Versatile and delicious, Baileys is perfect for creating indulgent dessert cocktails like a Baileys Flat White Martini.
- Cream from small, local Irish family farms is combined with aged Irish whiskey from various distilleries across Ireland
- From here luxurious vanilla pods and rich cocoa beans are added, giving Baileys its signature chocolate character and aroma
- Taking inspiration from the process of making ice cream, Baileys’ recipe guarantees each and every bottle will taste as delicious as the day it was made for two years, without any artificial preservatives
With a chocolate aroma and silky-smooth mouth feel Baileys has rich and indulgent flavors of dairy cream, cocoa, and vanilla.
It is these indulgent flavors, aromas, and a velvety texture that make Baileys the perfect liqueur to get creative with. From coffee-style Baileys serves to creamy Baileys cocktails, this liqueur is perfect for creating after dinner cocktails and impressing guests. Also, it is the ideal liqueur to share with your venue’s kitchen as it can be used to make delicious desserts and treats.
