We have not yet trialed Baileys Almande Almondmilk Liqueur, so this is an informational review post only. I cannot yet give it a rating or personally weigh in on the taste or consistency. But if you have tried it, please do leave a comment with your own review!
The news of the very first dairy-free Baileys cream liqueur hit me with mixed emotions. My immediate excitement that a dairy-free Irish Cream had at last arrived was squelched when I realized that Baileys Almande was an Almondmilk Liqueur with a heavy focus on nuttiness, not mint. But after my initial disappointment wore off, I recognized what a huge leap this is for the dairy-free community. Not to mention, a creamy almond spirit sounds pretty amazing in its own right! The brand even offered several refreshing ways to enjoy sipping Baileys Almande over the summer (see and pin the image below!) …
According to Baileys, this new Almondmilk liqueur is made from sweet almond oil and almond essence (extracted from crushed almonds), cane sugar and purified water with a touch of real vanilla. Though it hints at a creamy finish, it is reportedly quite light in taste and consistency. I think we are still a few products away from a truly rich, cream liqueur that is non-dairy, but for now Baileys Almande could do.
Price: TBD per 750 mL bottle
Availability: I would expect Baileys Almande Almondmilk Liqueur to roll out to stores where other Baileys’ products are found.
Certifications: I do not believe Baileys Almande Almondmilk Liqueur has any certifications.
Dietary Notes: By ingredients, Baileys Almande Almondmilk Liqueur is dairy-free / non-dairy and gluten-free. It may also be egg-free, peanut-free, soy-free, vegan / plant-based, and vegetarian, but we still need to confirm. Nonetheless, check with the company on their manufacturing processes for all varieties if potential allergen cross-contamination is an issue for you. Processes and labeling are subject to change at any time for any company / product.
