The Baileys story began in Dublin, 1974. David Dand, now known as the Godfather of Baileys, had a vision for something new, something unapologetically luxurious.
Alongside a passionate team of technical experts, David Gluckman, Tom Jago, Steve Wilson and MacMcPherson, David began his mission to create the Baileys recipe: an unashamedly delicious blend of two of Ireland’s most delicious ingredients – rich dairy cream and the finest whiskey.
The Baileys recipe is an indulgent, one-of-a-kind blend of premium quality cream, triple-distilled whiskey and fine spirits. It’s the very best of Ireland in one bottle.
Every single drop of Baileys cream is supplied by small, local Irish family farms. Each year, 38,000 top-bred Irish dairy cows produce over 220 million litres of fresh cream specifically for the creation of Baileys. These cows, known to us as the Baileys Ladies, spend 300 days a year grazing outside in luscious green fields of Ireland, enjoying fresh Irish air and listening to playlists of their favourite music (or should that be moo-sic?). Happy cows equal delicious cream, don’t you know?
