The highly-anticipated vegan Baileys drink has launched in UK supermarkets.

The nut-based tipple costs between £10 a bottle (ASDA) and £16 (Waitrose).

The original Baileys recipe contained beeswax and honey, but the brand has now adapted to the fast-growing vegan trends by forgoing the insect-based ingredients.

Victoria Reeve, from Asda, said: “With veganism and dairy-free diets on the rise, we’re excited to be stocking Baileys Almande – a spin on a classic drink which gives our customers more options in the spirit aisle.”

According to Baileys: “Baileys Almande is dairy-free and vegan-friendly, but very much not free from naughty, delicious indulgence. 

“Our alcoholic almond drink blends sweet almond oil and almond essence (from crushed almonds), cane sugar and purified water with a touch of real vanilla. 

“Baileys Almande is dairy-free and vegan-friendly, but very much not free from naughty, delicious indulgence.”
