Baileys Irish Whiskey Cream story began in Dublin, 1974. David Dand, now known as the Godfather of Baileys, had a vision for something new. Inspired by the sense of change in the air, he dreamt of creating an innovative and utterly indulgent liqueur. The very first version of the Baileys recipe was created with an ordinary kitchen mixer and a winning recipe didn’t exactly come easily. 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.
