Answered by Stephen Mosley

There is Irish whiskey in Baileys. Baileys Original Irish Cream is known for its rich and creamy taste, and this is achieved by combining Irish dairy cream and Irish whiskey with other ingredients. The use of Irish whiskey adds a distinct and traditional flavor to the liqueur.

Irish whiskey has a long and storied history, dating back centuries. It is made from a combination of malted and unmalted barley, which is then aged in wooden casks. The unique climate and natural resources of Ireland contribute to the production of high-quality whiskey.

When it comes to Baileys, the Irish whiskey used is carefully selected to complement the other ingredients and enhance the overall flavor profile. The whiskey adds a subtle warmth and depth to the creamy and chocolatey taste of the liqueur.

Baileys takes pride in sourcing the majority of its ingredients from Ireland. The Irish dairy cream used in the production of Baileys is sourced from local farms, ensuring the highest quality and freshness. The cream is blended with the Irish whiskey, along with other ingredients, to create the signature taste of Baileys.

It is worth noting that Baileys also incorporates cocoa beans and vanilla extract in its recipe. These ingredients are not sourced from Ireland but rather from other parts of the world. The cocoa beans used in Baileys are harvested in West Africa and then processed in France. The vanilla extract used is also sourced from outside of Ireland.

While the majority of the ingredients in Baileys come from Ireland, including the dairy cream and whiskey, other components such as cocoa beans and vanilla extract are sourced from different regions. The combination of Irish whiskey, Irish dairy cream, and other carefully selected ingredients creates the unique and beloved taste of Baileys Original Irish Cream.
