Worldwide 1,600 glasses of Baileys are consumed every minute of every day.
Baileys is sold in over 130 countries.
50% of a bottle of Baileys is fresh Irish dairy cream.
50 million gallons (182 million litres) of milk is used to produce the cream for Baileys.
The milk used for Baileys accounts to some 4.3% of the total milk production in Ireland or 45% of manufacturing milk.
The whiskey used in Baileys is a triple-distilled Irish pot still whiskey. (Scotch whisky is normally double-distilled).
Baileys contains no preservatives or additives.
Shelf life and storageBaileys is the only cream liqueur that guarantees a totally natural product which delivers that unique, smooth Baileys taste for 24 months from the day it was made.
One of the keys to achieving this is the artful blending of the cream and whiskey - two products that are not normally compatible.
This is achieved through a combination of art and science and without the use of additives or preservatives, which results in the alcohol acting as a natural preservative for the product.
Baileys should be stored away from direct sunlight at temperature range 5 - 25°C or 41 - 77°F.
You don't have to refrigerate your bottle, but we recommend it - and it tastes even better when it's chilled!
Fluctuating its environment temperature too much will cause it to go clumpy - so try and always keep it roughly at the same temperature.
The storage conditions are the same for sealed or unopened bottles.
