Late December 2019 marked a milestone for Irish cream liqueur brand Baileys, with production of its two billionth bottle.
Jennifer English, Global Brand Director, Baileys at Diageo, said: “Today at Baileys HQ, extra sprinkles are flowing and sparklers sparkling as we celebrate our two billionth bottle of Baileys Original Irish Cream!”
First launched in Ireland in 1974, Baileys quickly travelled around the globe and is now available in 160 countries. 2,400 glasses of Baileys Original Irish Cream are consumed every minute of every day and to this day, every single bottle is made in Ireland. 220m litres of fresh Irish milk is required annually to produce the cream used in the production of Baileys.
Jennifer English continued: “Every single drop of milk in Baileys Original Irish Cream is supplied from small, local, Irish family farms and crafted from the highest quality ingredients.”
