Liqueur Muscat is one of Australia’s unique wine styles. While there are other muscat based fortified wine, in Australia we combine sherry aging & blending techniques with Muscat to produce a truly unctuous drop. Baileys is now part of the Treasury Wine Estates stable, although it was originally planted in 1870 by the Bailey family. Not only are there these fortified gems, but Baileys also produce some interesting big reds.
Rich & luscious raisin, nuts & prunes abound – it is just like Christmas cake in the glass. But don’t limit yourself to drinking it at Christmas, it is a pleasure on any day. Drink with a rich chocolately dessert, chilled as a sauce for ice cream or as a dessert in itself.
