A Baileys rep revealed the “indulgent taste of birthday cake is blended with the familiar taste of Baileys Original Irish Cream” and offered some serving suggestions.

Either drink it straight up over ice or whisk it into cake mix for desserts with a grown-up twist.

Baileys Birthday Cake is available in a 70cl bottle with an ABV of 17%.

Where can I get my hands on it?

With the world opening up again, the new Baileys Birthday Cake is on sale exclusively in travel retail at airports including London Heathrow, Gatwick, Dublin and Birmingham.

It’s a travel exclusive until January 2022, so until then you’ll only find it in the duty free shop if you’re off on holiday.

After that, it’ll be launched “domestically in select markets” – and we sure hope one of those select markets is our local Morrisons!

Eduardo Barp, Diageo Global Travel’s managing director, which makes Baileys, said: “We’re delighted to announce the launch of Baileys Birthday Cake, a unique and exciting new product, as a 6-month travel retail exclusive.”

What have early testers said about the new Baileys Birthday Cake?

You may have seen a few bottles being posted on Instagram, so we’ve scoured the comments to give you the lowdown.

One Baileys fan admitted: “I bought a bottle in Birmingham airport. So nice but very sickly.”

The posts have apparently prompted some to start booking their overseas holidays.

One commented online: “Booking my flights now!”

Another tagged their friend and said: “We might need to book a flight somewhere!”
