NEW YORK, March 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Spring has officially sprung and the welcomed warmer weather has finally met its perfect match in new Baileys Almande Almondmilk Liqueur. This innovative, naturally light tasting spirit is a dairy-free, gluten-free and certified vegan liqueur that blends the luscious, nutty flavors of real almondmilk with delicious vanilla for an incredibly versatile treat. Join us in raising a glass to the first day of warmer weather, which means summer beach days are not too far away!
"We are excited to welcome spring with Baileys Almande, which offers the same quality and delicious flavor that people love about Baileys, but now in a dairy-free, gluten-free and vegan option that we know many are thrilled to enjoy," said Alex Tomlin, SVP of Scotch Whisky & Reserve Brands at Diageo North America. "Baileys Almande is delicious, light and easily mixed with refreshing Vita Coco® Coconut Water, which makes it the perfect warm weather treat to enjoy responsibly!"

No matter how it's served, new Baileys Almande is the perfect, naturally light tasting spirit that boasts the same calorie count as an average 5 ounce glass of wine, but in a much more delightful sip!
