Baileys brings back pumpkin spice-flavored Irish cream
NEW YORK — Baileys is getting into the coming season with the revival of its pumpkin spice-flavored Irish cream. Initially introduced last year, the company sold out of its stock of Baileys Pumpkin Spice in three months and brought it back this autumn as a limited-edition flavor.
"We were absolutely delighted with the overwhelmingly positive response to Baileys Pumpkin Spice last year that it gave us no choice but to bring it back this fall," Diageo director of Baileys and liquers Nicola Heckles, said. "Baileys Pumpkin Spice was a natural addition to the Baileys portfolio, and we encourage everyone to celebrate the season responsibly and enjoy Baileys Pumpkin Spice…while they still can!"
Baileys Pumpkin Spic blends cinnamon and baking spices with maple, brown sugar and baked pie crust, as well as vanilla and coffee hints. The product will be on shelves through November in 750-ml bottles with a suggested retail price of $24.99.
