Meet the new Baileys Almande Almondmilk Liqueur. This naturally light tasting spirit is a dairy-free, gluten-free and certified vegan liqueur that blends the luscious, nutty flavors of real almondmilk with delicious vanilla for an incredibly versatile treat.
Last year Baileys hit issues with creating a certified vegan product when it was discovered they used beeswax in the recipe. Baileys worked hard to remove all animal products from the formulation. Baileys representative Dominic Benigno told VegNews “We respect vegans and veganism, want to be fully transparent, and offer Irish cream that everyone can enjoy.”
And it seems as though they’ve finally delivered.
“We are excited to welcome spring with Baileys Almande, which offers the same quality and delicious flavor that people love about Baileys, but now in a dairy-free, gluten-free and vegan option that we know many are thrilled to enjoy,” said Alex Tomlin, SVP of Scotch Whisky & Reserve Brands at Diageo North America. “Baileys Almande is delicious, light and easily mixed with refreshing Vita Coco Coconut Water, which makes it the perfect warm weather treat to enjoy responsibly!”
While Baileys Almande is extremely versatile and lends itself perfectly to a multitude of offerings, the signature Baileys Almande Refresh showcases its effortless mixability with coconut water. Baileys Almande Refresh and Vita Coco have created delicious cocktail recipes that are dairy-free, gluten-free and vegan. No matter how it’s served, new Baileys Almande is the perfect, naturally light tasting spirit that boasts the same calorie count as an average 5 ounce glass of wine, but in a much more delightful sip!
To get you started on your new Vegan Baileys journey we’ve got this super simple recipe to kick things off.
