Product of: Ireland (Eire)
The 15.7% alc./vol. liqueur (1.3% lower than Baileys Original) was developed by Anthony Wilson, a scientist working for Diageo and the son of man who invented the original Baileys. Wilson tasted 800 types of chocolate, visited three continents and created nearly 200 variants before arriving at the Chocolat Luxe formula. He said he wanted to create an 'ambient molten chocolate experience akin to a "multi-sensory experience of eating chocolate".
