NEW YORK, NY (February 16, 2021) – Baileys is shedding a new light on 2021 with the launch of Baileys Deliciously Light – the latest addition to the Baileys portfolio that’s made with 40% less sugar and 40% less calories than Baileys Original Irish Cream.1 With the introduction of Baileys Deliciously Light, you can now easily treat yourself and loved ones (21 or older) with a whole new way to take a light break that we all deserve. Featuring a flavor similar to the one you know and love from Baileys, including cream from Ireland combined with Irish whiskey, fine spirits, and rich cocoa and vanilla flavors, this lighter option is now available in addition to our beloved Baileys Original Irish Cream.
Neil Patrick Harris certainly knows the value of taking a light break from his roles as husband, father, award-winning actor, writer, director, and veritable jack-of-all-trades. In celebration of the launch of Baileys Deliciously Light, Neil generously gifted the ultimate light break to his longtime friend and confidante, Michael Serrato. With Baileys Deliciously Light at the ready, Neil treated Michael to hundreds of festive balloons, a dedicated marching band, along with a personalized billboard in the sky sharing a billowy motivational message over his home. Talk about a breather!
“Without a doubt, one of the best parts of the day is when you can finally take a moment and treat yourself to a much-needed break,” says Neil Patrick Harris. “However, many of us forget to do just that. As we ease into 2021, it’s obvious that we all need to take it easy every now and then. That’s why I’ve partnered with Baileys to launch Baileys Deliciously Light... it provides the perfect option for an afternoon treat when you can use a moment for yourself or with loved ones.”
If you find yourself ready to treat yourself to a light break of your own, you’re in luck: Baileys Deliciously Light is now on shelves and ready for the treating. And if you want to follow in Neil’s footsteps and acknowledge a friend or two, Baileys is partnering with Cocktail Courier to offer four custom Light Break packages. (Packages are only available in the contiguous 48 United States [except where otherwise indicated], subject to applicable local law.) Each one is specifically curated for a variety of people in your life (21 or older) who deserve a special treat, offering a unique Baileys Deliciously Light cocktail on top of other assorted goodies:
“We’re delighted to offer a lighter version of our beloved Baileys Original Irish Cream,” says Stacey Cunningham, Director of Baileys & Liqueurs, Diageo North America. “We all deserve a little treat and with the launch of Baileys Deliciously Light, it’s the perfect reminder for us to take that well-deserved time for ourselves this year.”
Baileys Deliciously Light is a delicious and versatile new product offering that can be enjoyed in a variety of ways including over ice, chilled, in a smoothie or with hot, iced or whipped coffee so you now have more occasions to treat yourself including daytime celebrations, brunch and many more. The liquid is now available nationwide (wherever spirits-based beverages are sold) for a suggested retail price of $24.99 for a 750mL format.
