Carolans Irish Cream

Carolans Irish Cream (the registered trade mark omits the apostrophe) is a liqueur made from a mixture of cream, Irish spirits, Irish whiskey and honey.[1] Carolans was developed in 1978 and first sold in the UK in July 1979.[1] It has a declared alcohol content of 17% or 14.5% alcohol by volume (ABV). The liqueur is made in Clonmel, County Tipperary, in the Republic of Ireland. The brand is owned by Gruppo Campari and was previously owned by William Grant and C&C Group.[2]

Commonly used description:

"Deep milky brown hue. Forward, spirity, whiskey-accented lactic flavors. A rich, milky attack leads to a moderately full-bodied palate with a touch of sweetness."[3]
