1971 Baileys was the brainchild of R&A Bailey, who combined the great Irish tradition of distilling with the other great Irish tradition of dairy farming to create a uniquely Irish drink reflecting Ireland's heritage.

1972 While the product concept was relatively simple and manageable, the chemistry proved to be a very difficult issue to resolve as whiskey and cream do not mix naturally.

1973 The recipe was perfected and the difficulties associated with bulk production and shelf life were overcome.

1974 Baileys was launched.

1979 Sales grew rapidly, one million cases were sold around the world, and another 700,000 cases were added to this over the next five years.

1980s Consumers started to drink Baileys over ice, which created more drinking occasions for Baileys to be enjoyed.

1990s Baileys became the single most successful new spirit to be introduced anywhere in the world in the last 30 years.

2002 Baileys Minis launched.

2005 Today Baileys is the only cream liqueur with a shelf life of 24 months.

2006 Two exciting new Baileys flavours launched: Baileys with a Hint of Mint Chocolate and Baileys with a Hint of Caramel
