Baileys Almande skips the dairy for almonds and is also gluten-free

Baileys Irish Creme has become an iconic drink since its introduction in 1974, but as times and taste buds change, the company is making a few tweaks to its classic formula to cater to a generation that is increasingly shunning products that contain milk.

Arriving just in time for colder weather, Baileys Almande is an entirely vegan formulation of the classic whiskey-and-cream liqueur that contains no milk and is also gluten-free. Instead, the company has used almonds, a popular milk substitute, to achieve the same creamy texture as the original beverage.

The new product, aside from having a swanky name, also features an elegant white bottle design to distinguish it from Baileys' other beverages. The Almande is currently being sold exclusively at Whole Foods.
