The story of the world’s best selling liqueur begins in 1971 when the idea of blending Irish whskey and Irish cream originated due to what was then Grand Metropolitan owning both the spirits firm and the dairy firm.
First launched in 1974, Baileys’ creators borrowed a process from the ice-cream industry to combine spirit and fresh cream without souring the cream. The process removes and replaces the protein in the cream thus giving it a positive charge. When this is blended with the negatively charged alcohol, the two combine harmoniously.
Aroma: creamy latte coffee and milky chocolate with a hint of nutmeg spice.
Taste: creamy and balanced with cocoa powder, dark chocolate, creamy latte coffee and a touch of nuttiness.
