Baileys Irish Cream is a classic combination of Irish whisky, fresh Irish dairy cream and the finest spirits, infused together to create a silky velvety liqueur. Best enjoyed poured over ice, added to cocktails or even to coffee for an indulgent twist.
Baileys Irish cream is a perfect marriage of fresh, premium quality Irish dairy cream, finest spirits, Irish whiskey and a proprietary recipe of chocolate flavors. Over 80% of the raw ingredients and packaging used to make and present Baileys Irish cream is sourced from the island of Ireland. The cream is fresh, dairy cream that comes from two dairy suppliers. The whiskey is a triple pot still blend, made to a proprietary specification and supplied from The Old Midleton Distillery, Co Cork. The sugar comes from sugar cane and sugar beet. The distinct style of Baileys Irish cream is derived from a unique proprietary recipe of natural cocoa extracts, giving Baileys Irish cream its chocolate character and essence. 275 million litres of fresh Irish milk are required annually to produce the fresh cream used in the manufacture of Baileys Irish cream. 40,000 of the top-bred Irish dairy cows produced the daily cream requirement for Baileys Irish cream grazing on approximately 1500 selected and accredited Irish farms mainly on the East coast of Ireland. This affords full traceability.
As is the case with milk, cream will curdle whenever it comes into contact with a weak acid. Milk and cream contain casein, which coagulates, when mixed with weak acids such as lemon, tonic water, or traces of wine. While this outcome is undesirable in most situations, some cocktails specifically encourage coagulation.
International spirit ratings competitions, including at the San Francisco World Spiritis Competition, the Beverage Testing Institute, and others, have assessed Baileys offerings. In general, Baileys has performed well, with the classic Irish Cream generally receiving the highest awards.
