Baileys Almande Almondmilk Liqueur

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!) …

Baileys Almande Almondmilk Liqueur - the first dairy-free cream liqueur from Baileys is here!

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.

  1. it can;t be gluten free due to the fact that whiskey has wheat in it. the last time I had baileys it had whiskey in it.

  2. Was very excited about the new Baileys Almande because I loved original Baileys. But found out I have a dairy allergy and I am gluten free. With that bring said, I just tried it. Both on ice and I’m my favorite Tim Hortons coffee. Not as good as I expected. You can taste the almond milk and I can taste the soy on it. It’s not terrible but disappointing if you like Bailey’s. I have been looking to see what the liquor is because it can’t be whisky. Whisky has gluten. After my first taste of it I added a little silk almond caramel flavor creamer (non dairy too) and it sweetened it up some. If you like caramel you should try it.

  3. I heard it contains soy. Soy is awful. I am allergic to it. I will not be purchasing this unless it is soy free as well. So many gluten free products have soy in them as fillers. Just wrong.

    Being gluten and dairy free there’s not to much I feel comfortable drinking.
    Tried this at home in Canada and I love it.
    As per most things if you can’t have the “real thing” (pizza crust…cheese) then you “make do” with the alternative versions.
    Well with this there is no “making do”…the stuff is great.
    If you can’t have dairy, there’s no point in reminiscing about the original product, just put the name Baileys out of you head and enjoy this as a drink that is acceptable to your dietary needs.
    I am currently on vacation on Maui and can not find the stuff…it’s killing me…lol!

  5. Franny i agree 100% with your comment, What a disapointment it turned out to be , Sure wish i hadn’t bought TWO bottles!!

  6. This is available at Vons & probably Albertsons too… I bought several bottles of it , certain it would be every bit as tasty as Baileys irish cream , but unfortunately I didn’t care for it , It seemed to have a strange flavor. Does anyone know what Alcohol it contains ?? the ingredients only state that its made with Almond oil . I know regular Baileys is made with irish whiskey But I think the Almondmilk liquor must contain something else to give it that odd flavor.

  7. I really enjoyed this almond milk version. It was rough to get as it’s not sold in my area. My brother brought it from Texas over Christmas. I actually think I prefer it to original Baileys. However it’s been a long time since having Baileys original.

  8. I can’t find the full ingredient list on their website or anywhere online, but almost sure it as carageenan, to which I am extremely allergic (asthma).

  9. I just bought it in Texas at Spec’s and I mixed it with coconut water and I think it was delicious, like a Rumchata but dairy free and not extremely sweet. Soooo good and hopefully it has less calories than regular Baileys.

  10. I just brought the Baileys Almande Almondmilk Liqueur because I thought WOW Baileys with no milk I can go for that. I have liked Baileys but I had to stop drinking it because of my IBS and the cream within the product did a real number on my stomach and intestinal system. I found the Almande Almondmilk at my one of my favorite liquor outlets. It tastes pretty good but I am still afraid to indulge wholeheartedly because I cannot afford to have my stomach turned inside out.
    I also have to say at $35 a whoop I will not be purchasing it to frequently, Baileys is already very expensive so I don’t see much Almande Almondmilk in my future unless I could get a coupon. I can use other milk/dairy free products to create a version of Baileys that wont hurt my system. I might try this new Baileys Almondmilk if they come down on the price, I don’t understand why it should be so pricey just for using non-dairy products.

  11. hi all

    does anybody know if it is already to sale?

    I´ve been looking for this in San Diego, CA. but I didn´t find it

    • It’s being test marketed, so availability seems spotty right now. I was told they would roll it out this summer … so hopefully soon! Stay tuned though – I’ll be reviewing another brand that’s already out!

  12. Yay! I’m so excited about this and I’m sure it will spur on new flavours and inspire other companies to make more dairy-free options 🙂
