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 unapologetically delicious ingredients – rich dairy cream and the finest whisky.

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 to create dessert like cocktails such as a Baileys Affogato or a Baileys Flat White Martini.

Production Process

  • 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 to taste as delicious as the day it was made for two years. And that’s without any artificial preservatives too!

Flavour Profile

With a chocolate aroma and silky smooth mouth feel Baileys has rich and indulgent flavours of dairy cream, cocoa and vanilla.

From coffee style Baileys serves to creamy Baileys cocktails, this liqueur is perfect for creating after dinner cocktails and wowing your 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.
