Baileys debuts Vanilla Mint Shake liqueur
Diageo-owned Baileys liqueur has released a limited edition vanilla and mint-flavoured variant ahead of St Patrick’s Day (17 March) in the US.
Baileys Vanilla Mint Shake Irish Cream Liqueur was created to commemorate the brand’s roots in Ireland, which dates back to 1974.
Made with flavours of mint, vanilla and a hint of chocolate, the new liqueur is recommended served in an adult milkshake, as a chilled shot or over ice cream.
The Irish cream liqueur brand described the new expression as an ‘adult twist on a classic treat, perfect for any St Patrick’s Day celebration’.
“This St Patrick’s Day, Baileys is going minty green for the first time ever,” said Sophie Kelly, senior vice-president of whiskies and liqueurs, Diageo North America.
“We are absolutely thrilled to provide a new delicious indulgence for everyone’s annual celebrations.
“St Patrick’s Day is always a time when people come together to have a bit of fun and toast to the Emerald Isle, and we hope this year it’s with the decadent Baileys Vanilla Mint Shake.”
Baileys Vanilla Mint Shake is available for a limited time across the US for RRP US$24.99 per 750ml bottle. It has an ABV of 17%.
The world’s biggest-selling liqueur brand has released a number of limited edition expressions over the past few years, including a marshmallow-flavoured variant inspired by s’mores, and a coconut and pineapple-infused bottling.
In October, Baileys became the largest spirit brand to achieve B Corp certification.
The liqueur was named the most popular alcohol brand in the UK, according to a study last year.
