The ingredients used in Baileys are Gluten free. On the basis of this and to the best of our knowledge there are no traces of Gluten in Baileys. As we are not qualified to give medical advice persons requiring a Gluten free diet should consult their medical adviser before consuming Baileys.

Egg/Egg Products:

None of the ingredients used in Baileys use egg or egg products in their manufacture. On the basis of this and to the best of our knowledge there are no traces of egg in Baileys. As we are not qualified to give medical advice persons with requiring an egg-free diet must consult their medical adviser before consuming Baileys.

Dairy/ Lactose:

Baileys contains about 50% cream (& milk protein) from dairy milk. Baileys also contains trace amounts (0.85-1.0%) of Lactose, which is a constituent of milk. If the allergy is specifically to Lactose and not due to any other milk constituent then it may be possible for the consumer to consume Baileys. Please note that we are not qualified to give medical advice therefore you should consult with your medical adviser before consuming Baileys.


None of the ingredients used in Baileys use nut or nut products in their manufacture. On the basis of this and to the best of our knowledge there are no traces of nuts in Baileys.

Baileys Shelf Life

Baileys is the only cream liqueur that guarantees its taste for 2 years from the day it was made, opened or unopened, stored in the fridge or not, when stored away from direct sunlight at a temperature range of 0-25 degrees centigrade.

One of the keys to achieving this 2 year shelf-life is in our unique process of blending of fresh Irish cream with the spirits and the whiskey without the use of preservatives. The alcohol acts as a natural preservative for the product.

Under normal conditions of storage Baileys has a shelf-life of 24 months.

If you are concerned about a bottle of Baileys please check the Best Before End date on the bottle – all bottles carry a Best Before End date. This number is located on the bottom left hand side of the back label. We wouldn’t recommend that you consume Baileys after this date, as you may not experience the great taste of Baileys at its best.

Example: Code 11 20XY would mean that we guarantee the product would taste perfect until November 20XY
(XY is the year 2 years from the date of manufacture).

I’m happy to enjoy Irish cream any time of the year, but as St. Patrick’s Day approaches, this creamy libation gets special attention. Not only do people enjoy sipping it, but it’s also a tasty addition to our favorite sweet treats. Whether you have to avoid wheat or not, I guarantee you’ll feel like a lucky leprechaun if you make and enjoy any one (or more!) of A Dozen Decadent (and Gluten Free) Irish Cream Desserts.

I’ve made a few Irish cream desserts myself, and I’m often asked if this liqueur is actually gluten free. I am not a medical professional or an expert in the manufacture of alcohols, so, especially if you have celiac disease or a severe allergy, you should consult your doctor. But I have found some information in my research. The whiskey in Irish cream is made from various grains, including gluten-containing grains. However, the distillation process does typically separate the alcohol from the gluten in the grains. Bailey’s has said on their website that they do not use any ingredients that contain gluten, but they are not qualified to advise on whether someone can consume their product. Carolan’s does state on their website that their Irish cream is gluten free. I have not researched other brands, but if in doubt, I’ve heard many people be successful in getting that Irish cream flavor without gluten or alcohol, if that is something you also want to avoid, by using Irish cream-flavored coffee creamer in recipes. So you can also give that a shot.

What does all of this mean? Do your research, consult your doctor, consider your condition, and then, in many cases, raise a glass and a fork or spoon! And if gluten is no concern to you at all, then it doesn’t matter if the Irish cream or the recipes are gluten free, but they are all so fabulous that you’ll want to make them anyway.

Homemade Baileys Irish Cream is really easy to make without condensed milk, which is sweetened. This keto baileys copy cat recipe tastes almost identical to the real thing, and you won’t need to worry about being kicked out of ketosis from consuming too many carbs.

Carbs In Baileys

Drinking Baileys on a cold evening by the fire is my type of alcohol, but I haven’t been able to drink any since going low carb. Ordinary Baileys contains a whopping 8 g of sugar per serving. This is just too much on top of a day’s worth of trace carbohydrates from food.

Alternative Ingredients For Maximum Flavour

You can make this Irish cream with any kind of whiskey, so don’t worry too much about using an Irish brand. I’ve even made this recipe with spiced rum and it tastes delicious.

You could also create a keto Kahlua by substituting the 1/4 tsp instant coffee granules with either 2 tsp of instant espresso or 60 ml of brewed espresso (from a machine if available). Baileys has a chocolate taste, which a little bit of espresso helps enhance. On the other hand, Kahlua requires more coffee and less chocolate.

Low Carb Alcoholic Coffee Drinks

You can use Baileys in many different ways, and more specifically, it can be used in Irish Coffee.

This isn’t a traditional Irish coffee, but a long black with 50 ml of this keto Baileys recipe would give you a delicious version. This is particularly wonderful if you are looking to celebrate St Patrick’s day whilst keeping your carbs low.

Serve Baileys over ice, with milk, or by itself. I’ve taken swigs straight from the bottle (don’t judge) and it’s delicious, but having a fancy glass and a warm fireplace makes it a little more indulgent and sophisticated.

Vegan Irish Cream

In my family, my mom or sister make the homemade Kahlúa, and I make the homemade Baileys.

Our Vegan Baileys Irish Cream is definitely not reserved for holidays only. This is a year round beverage and mixer for us.

Is Whiskey Gluten Free?


In theory.

The distillation process removes the gluten proteins. According to the National Institutes of Health Celiac Awareness Campaign, distilled alcohol is considered gluten free and safe to drink, even if originally derived from wheat, barley, or rye. This not only applies to rye whiskey and scotch whisky, but vodka and gin as well.

Where things change is bourbons and other whiskeys that add a mash after distilling. The mash often contains wheat / gluten.

Both my husband and I are diagnosed gluten intolerant (which I think is actually something else, but that’s for another day. We had zero issues with bread and beer in Europe), and neither of us have issues with whiskeys or whiskys, or any distilled spirits. My mom is celiac, and she also has not had issues.

My suggestion is to do your research if you have concerns. There are plenty of threads and information to learn from.

How To Make Vegan Baileys

The quintessential and distinct liqueur we all know and love is extremely easy to make at home. Just a few common pantry ingredients make up this tasty recipe, and even those are flexible:

  • dairy free milk: feel free to replace the coconut milk with a dairy free milk or creamer product of your choosing. I have made this with cashew milk and hemp milk – the thicker milks lend a creamy consistency.
  • sweetener: if you prefer, add a bit of your favorite sweetener. maple syrup, date syrup or a simple sugar mixture works best.

Thoroughly combine all ingredients. Enjoy over ice or as a mixer in a cocktail.

How Long Does Vegan Irish Cream Last?

Transfer your homemade Baileys into airtight containers and keep refrigerated.

Refrigerated homemade vegan Baileys Irish Cream lasts 10 days / 2 weeks.

Vegan Holiday Drink Recipes

  • Hot Chocolate Peppermint Shots: spiked or not, these festive and fun shots of hot chocolate come in a minty cool shot glass!

    Gluten-free, Dairy-free Baileys Irish Cream Copycat Recipe

    … Raising a Glass in Cheer Once Again!

    Oh, oh, oh this is so, so good! I’ve been missing those sweet, creamy, luxurious-mouth-feel drinks. You too? Well, miss them no more! We gluten-free, dairy-free folks have to stick together and share our successes, right? Even toasting to them occasionally. So pull up a bar stool, lift your glass (filled with this lovely Baileys Irish Cream Copycat), and toast to another delicious and safe* alcoholic beverage.

    For those who might not be familiar with the original Baileys Irish Cream, it has a flavor of cream, coffee, whiskey, and a hint of chocolate. Oh, and did I mention, deliciousness. Yes, that too.

    I’ve been told by folks without food restrictions that this recipe mimics the real thing quite well, with the original being just a bit sweeter. For my taste, I don’t think it needs extra sweetness, but you can easily increase it to your liking. You can also adjust the level of whiskey you include. This recipe has boldness to it. Again something I like, but it can be toned down to your preference.

    The ingredients blend up in less than a minute in your trusty blender, and the mixture will last up to two months if kept chilled in the fridge (I keep mine in a re-sealable mason jar). When you’re ready to use it, simply give the jar a quick shake to re-homogenize the ingredients, then pour and enjoy.

    Baileys Irish Cream Copycat is delicious naked sipped from a glass (a chilled glass would be fun), over ice, or coconut milk or almond milk ice cubes (so they don’t make the cocktail watery when they melt), and especially in coffee. Adding a smidge of this mixture makes that morning cup of coffee (holidays and weekends, my friends) or after dinner coffee so much more enjoyable, if you ask me.

    So let’s get to the recipe, so we can get to the toasting!

    And if you like creamy and luxurious feeling drinks, be sure to try my Snowflake recipe too!

    Gluten-free Dairy-free Baileys Irish Cream Copycat Recipe

    Prep time: 5 minutes

    Cooking time: None

    Chill time: can be used immediately; store in fridge


    1/2 cup + 1 Tablespoon canned coconut milk, well shaken before measuring

    7 Tablespoons unsweetened almond milk

    14 ounces non-dairy sweetened condensed milk, room temp or chilled – see note below

    1 1/2 teaspoons instant coffee, reg or decaf – I use Maxwell House

    2 Tablespoons chocolate syrup – I use Hershey’s

    1 teaspoon vanilla – I use McCormick

    1 2/3 cup whiskey – Jack Daniels and Jameson Irish Whiskey are both g-f


    Combine all ingredients in a blender. Blend on high for 30 to 60 seconds. Taste for sweetness, add a little sugar if more sweetness is desired. Blend again, if appropriate. Serve and enjoy. Store in an airtight, re-sealable jar in fridge for up to two months. Shake before serving. (See serving suggestions in the intro above.)

    NOTE: To make non-dairy sweetened condensed milk, combine 2 14-ounce cans coconut milk (regular not low-fat – I like Thai Kitchen) and 1/2 cup sugar in a medium saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat and cook until reduced by half (14 ounces or 1 ¾ cups when done), stirring very often in the beginning of the cooking process, then constantly near the end when the mixture becomes thick. Use caution when stirring because the mixture will bubble up when you place a stirring utensil into the hot mixture. When reduced, remove from heat, add a pinch of salt, stir and let cool. Store in an airtight re-sealable jar in fridge until ready to use.

    *It’s only safe from allergens – please remember to drink responsibly so everyone can have fun and stay safe.

    I generously give thanks to Alisa Fleming of for her dairy-free substitutions that I’ve altered for this recipe.

    Cordials offer a delicious burst of flavor and sweetness. Offering endless possibilities, cordials are spirits combined with botanicals or other flavoring agents, as well as a sweetener and sometimes coloring. They’re ideal for sipping after a meal, spiking a tasty dessert and mixing into fun, colorful cocktails.

    The sweetening requirement is what makes cordials distinct from dry flavored spirits such as gin. In the United States, where “cordial” and “liqueur” are used interchangeably, regulations require that they contain at least 2.5 percent sugar by weight and be made from “fruits, flowers, plants, or pure juices therefrom, or other natural flavoring materials, or with extracts” of those materials. In Europe, cordials refer to non-alcoholic drinks. We use the terms based on U.S. regulations.

    The spirit base for cordials is often neutral, but it certainly doesn’t have to be. A robust spirit like whiskey, for example, can mix beautifully with other flavoring agents. Common flavors include fruits ranging from stone fruit to citrus and berries to nuts, as well as coffee and chocolate and even aromatic spices and seeds. Some liqueurs include a touch of cream to round out the other tasty elements.

    Regulations allow cordial producers creative license with not only the spirit and flavoring agent, but also how they’re incorporated. Some add flavoring agents after distillation by one of several methods. Infusion involves steeping the flavor source; maceration entails more aggressive crushing of the flavor components before steeping; percolation pumps water or spirits over the ingredients to extract flavors. Finally, flavor can be added by compounding, simply adding the flavoring extract to the spirit. Heartier flavoring agents such as seeds and flowers may be distilled along with the distillate, often for the second distillation, similar to the gin-making process.

    Cream liqueurs require homogenization and other different mixing processes.

    After producers marry flavoring agents with alcohol, they reduce the proof by adding water, which is sweetened and often colored. Sweetening agents include sugar, high-fructose corn syrup and honey. In some cases, producers use rectified grape must, a sugary, unfermented concentrated grape juice.
