Baileys is produced using the best quality ingredients: fresh Irish dairy cream, Irish whiskey and natural flavours. The cream used in Baileys is delivered daily in insulated tankers and processed on the day it arrives. The Irish whiskey is triple distilled. The great taste of Baileys is consistently delivered by combining the finest quality ingredients in a unique recipe. Baileys contains no preservatives and has a shelf life of 24 months.. The dominant aromatic feature is caramel. The palate entry features the cream/dairy element as much as caramel and nuts; the midpalate highlights the cream, the caramel flavoring, the spirit and the gentle spice. Concludes smooth, satiny and properly creamy with greater emphasis on the spice than the caramel.
