Baileys Red Velvet Cupcake launches in UKBy Nicola Carruthers
Diageo has released its limited edition red velvet cake-flavoured Baileys Irish cream liqueur in the UK.
The limited edition Baileys Red Velvet Cupcake was first released in the US in October 2019 as part of a collaboration with the founders of US bakery Georgetown Cupcake.
Baileys Red Velvet liqueur is said to taste like “fresh chocolate cake, topped with a dollop of cream cheese frosting and just a hint of cocoa powder”. The finish has “chocolate and creamy icing flavours”.
The 17% ABV expression is recommended served over ice or in a hot chocolate.
Baileys Red Velvet Cupcake is available in major supermarkets in the UK, priced at £16 (US$21) per 700ml until stocks last.
Diageo recently celebrated the sale of its two billionth bottle of Baileys Irish cream liqueur, 45 years after the brand’s launch.
