Baileys Almande is Now Vegan

Vegan-certified Irish cream is set to hit store shelves by March.

Liquor company Baileys has obtained vegan certification for its Irish cream beverage Almande Almondmilk Liqueur. The company launched Almande as a dairy-free alternative to Baileys Irish cream last May, which received an outpour of excitement from the vegan community. While the brand did not initially intend to release a vegan product, support from those interested in a cruelty-free Irish cream beverage led Baileys to investigate the formulation of Almande—where they discovered the presence of beeswax. “I sincerely apologize for the confusion,” Baileys representative Dominic Benigno told VegNews in June. The new vegan-certified beverage was reformulated to serve the vocal vegan community, according to Director of Liqueurs at Diageo North America—Baileys parent company—Nicola Heckles. “We are very excited about the positive interest Baileys Almande Almondmilk Liqueur has received since our recent test launch in select cities around the US,” Heckles told VegNews. “Particularly, the vegan community has expressed great interest in the product both here in the US and beyond.” The new Baileys Almande Almondmilk will be available nationwide in March, with an official vegan symbol stamped on bottles.
