Baileys Original Irish Cream has launched two new flavours in the US. The Diageo-owned brand said yesterday (17 January) that Baileys Caramel and Baileys Mint Chocolate will be made available in the country for a limited time only, beginning in March.

Having already been introduced in Arizona last month, the new flavours will be available nationwide as a limited edition St. Patrick's Day offering at grocery, liquor, club and drug stores. The product will be available in 750 ml bottles retailing for approximately US$18.99.

The launch of the new flavours will coincide with a fully integrated marketing effort that includes merchandising and sampling in select locations.

"Our consumers enjoy the taste of our Baileys Original Irish Cream, but now it can be enjoyed with a hint of a little something extra," said Peter O'Connor, Baileys brand ambassador, "It's that hint of flavour in Baileys Caramel and Baileys Mint Chocolate that adds a new twist to the Baileys moment, whether you are enjoying them in a martini with friends or unwinding with Baileys on the rocks after a long day's work."
