NEW YORK, NY (February 17, 2022) – What’s a light moment you might ask? It’s taking that much needed time out of your day to celebrate yourself and your loved ones, whether it be over a delicious treat or a good laugh. To help encourage more of these moments, Baileys Deliciously Light Liqueur is partnering with contemporary artist, Baron Von Fancy, known for pushing the boundaries of design using expressive lettering, vivid colors and unexpected materials. Equally lively and audacious, Baron Von Fancy is using his individualistic style of art to spark moments for us to admire the unexpected, grin at his clever slogans, and treat ourselves with Baileys Deliciously Light iced coffee (because iced coffee is always a good idea!).
“Each day is a new opportunity to focus on ourselves and appreciate the light moments in life,” says Baron Von Fancy. “I’m excited to partner with Baileys Deliciously Light to help encourage more people to seek out the moments that unwittingly enhance our daily rituals – and sometimes the best way is with a Baileys Deliciously Light iced coffee break.”
To help inspire more of these moments, you can now enjoy a special message from Baron Von Fancy, either by admiring a work of art in your city or by sipping on a cocktail at home with friends and family:
“As we continue to ease into this year, Baileys Deliciously Light is delighted to help kick things off,” says Stacey Cunningham, Director of Baileys & Liqueurs, Diageo North America. “We hope this collaboration helps foster a lightness of spirit in more ways than one, and we’re sure that Baron Von Fancy’s messages will act as the perfect reminder to continue to enjoy those light moments in life!”
Launched in February 2021, Baileys Deliciously Light is the brand’s lightest indulgence yet. Made with 40% less sugar and 40% less calories than Baileys Original Irish Cream*, it’s currently available wherever fine spirits-based beverages are sold for a suggested retail price of $23.99 for a 750ml bottle.
