About Baileys Red Velvet Irish Cream Liqueur
The quality ingredients play a crucial role in Baileys. 200 million liters of fresh Irish milk that mostly comes from small, family-owned farms are used each year in the production of the cream that ends up in Baileys. The cream is then homogenized with whiskey from several distilleries, employing a process that prevents the liquids from separating. Several other secret ingredients, herbs, and sugar are a part of the recipe which includes their proprietary cocoa extract.
Released in 2019, Baileys Red Velvet Irish Cream Liqueur is just as creamy as you've come to expect from Baileys. Crafted in collaboration with renowned cupcakery Georgetown Cupcake. Their Red Velvet cupcake is their best-seller, and now it's available in liqueur form. Bottled at 34 proof, it's a rich drink with cocoa and cream, along with gentle Irish whiskey notes. Its beautiful crimson color makes it a visual treat as well.

Baileys Irish Cream liqueur is the original Irish cream and nothing short of legendary. The iconic drink was originally created by Thomas Edwin Jago ― who is also credited for creating Malibu and Johnnie Walker Blue Label ― for W&A Gilbey in 1974. With his team, he concocted the brilliant idea of combining two Irish treasures ― whiskey and dairy cream. After 2 years of experimentation, they finally came up with the recipe that included some of the finest spirits, chocolate, and vanilla flavors. The recipe endures today under Diageo's ownership.
This typical aperitif has its origins in 13th century Italy where it was used for medicinal purposes. The liqueur is produced worldwide and can have all sorts of flavor profiles, from fruit, spices, nuts, and even cream, and has a low proof of 15 to 30% ABV.
Liqueur can be enjoyed in many different fashions, from drinking neat, in cocktails, served with coffee, or even used for cooking.
