First created in Ireland in 1974, Baileys reached the milestone in December 2019 when it sold its two billionth bottle.

Jennifer English, global brand director for Baileys at Diageo, said: “There has never been a more exciting time for Baileys. It has captured the imagination of millions of treat lovers around the world with so many delicious ways to enjoy it.

Since launching in Ireland, Baileys has been available in 160 countries. According to Diageo, 2,400 glasses of the cream liqueur are now consumed every minute of every day.
