Vegan drinkers will be pleased to discover that Baileys has introduced its first dairy-free substitute to the much-loved coffee-flavoured liqueur.
Get to know the brand-new Baileys Almande Almondmilk Liqueur. This organically lightweight tasting spirit is a dairy-free, gluten-free and a certified vegan liqueur that blends the luscious, nutty flavors of real almond milk with great tasting vanilla for an exceptionally delicious treat.
Last year Baileys hit difficulties with producing a certified vegan product when it was uncovered they used beeswax in the recipe. Baileys worked hard to eliminate all animal products from the ingredients. Baileys representative Dominic Benigno told VegNews “We respect vegans and veganism, want to be fully transparent, and offer Irish cream that everyone can enjoy.”
And it seems as if they’ve finally delivered a great vegan liquor option.

” We are excited to welcome spring with Baileys Almande, which offers the same quality and delicious flavor that people love about Baileys, but now in a dairy-free, gluten-free and vegan option that we know many are thrilled to enjoy,” said Alex Tomlin, SVP of Scotch Whisky & Reserve Brands at Diageo North America. “Baileys Almande is delicious, light and easily mixed with refreshing Vita Coco Coconut Water, which makes it the perfect warm weather treat to enjoy responsibly!”
While Baileys Almande is exceptionally versatile and lends itself wonderfully to a wide variety of offerings, the trademark Baileys Almande Refresh showcases its effortless mixability with coconut water. Baileys Almande Refresh and Vita Coco have created mouth watering cocktail recipes that are dairy-free, gluten-free and vegan. Regardless of how it’s served, new Baileys Almande is the ideal, naturally light tasting spirit that flaunts the same calorie count as an average 5 ounce glass of wine, but in an even more pleasurable drink!
To get you started off on your all new Vegan Baileys adventure we’ve got this incredibly simple recipe to kick things off.
