The popular Irish cream liqueur brand, founded by Gilbey’s of Ireland in 1974, was the first of its kind on the market.

Having introduced mint chocolate and crème caramel flavours in 2005, in 2008 the brand launched a coffee-flavoured variant and most recently a hazelnut and biscotti flavour, along with a limited edition run of orange truffle last Christmas, which went on sale in the UK and Australia for just three months between October 2012 and January 2013, having been specifically designed with the “discerning female shopper” in mind.

Last October, Baileys launched its biggest ever global advertising campaign in an attempt to inject fresh energy into the brand and attract young female consumers into the cream liqueur category. Running with the: “Cream with Spirit” slogan, the ad campaign was choreographed by Michael Rooney, the man behind Fat Boy Slim’s memorable “Praise You” video.

To back up the campaign, this March, Baileys revealed a new slimline, jet-black bottle design with a revamped, more feminine “B” logo.
