First introduced in 1974, Baileys Original Irish Cream is made from Irish whiskey, Irish cream, spirit, and chocolate. This brand is currently owned by Diageo and there are many other flavors in the Baileys portfolio including vegan and gluten free versions. Bottled at 17% ABV in Ireland.
DAIRY LIQUEURS ARE OFTEN MADE WITH REAL MILK OR CREAM, BUT THERE ARE “DAIRY FREE” OPTIONS MADE FROM ALMONDS, RICE, OR OTHER VEGAN OPTIONS. WHISKEY OR RUM ARE OFTEN USED IN THE BASE. EGG LIQUEURS TEND TO USE BRANDY AND SUGAR IN ITS CREATION.
“Kind of an unpleasant manufactured sweet milk chocolate nose. The taste is much better with a pleasing milk chocolate flavor. The finish brings out the spirit just a bit but it’s hard to find. Would like to see more of an Irish whiskey taste coming through. “
