Baileys Irish Cream
Baileys Irish Cream was created by Gilbeys of Ireland, a division of International Distillers & Vintners, as it searched for something to introduce to the international market. The process of finding a product began in 1971 and it was introduced in 1974 as the first Irish cream on the market. The Baileys name was granted permission by John Chesterman after Gilbeys asked to use the name from a restaurant that John Chesterman owned. The R.A. Bailey signature, were fictional, inspired by the Bailey’s Hotel in London, though the registered trademark omits the apostrophe. Baileys is produced in Dublin and Mallusk (Northern Ireland).
So, lets get to the point. Baileys Irish Cream is normally one for the ladies – get your granny on this and she’s going to be dancing an Irish jig. She’s going to think you’ve got her some kind of milk pudding on the go and won’t notice the 17% ABV giving her the ability to moonwalk. Whack it in a glass with a few ice cubes to chill it, and also dilute it out a bit.
You’re looking at £20 a bottle in the UK for Baileys Irish Cream. Yeah, some supermarkets here in China, occasionally have it on offer for silly prices, but when you rip off how much it costs us to package and deliver this, then we still beat them hands down.
