Liquor Review Category: Cream Liqueur
Producer: Gilbeys of Ireland
Alcohol content: 17.5%
Baileys claims a group of 1,500 farms raising over 40,000 cows all dedicated to the production of the cream. They claim they are the “happiest cows around” because they’re free range raised on grass. It’s blended with Irish whiskey and a combination of cocoa and vanilla to create the Irish cream.
The official trademark omits the notional possessive apostrophe in “Baileys,” which is an easy mistake to make.
