Arguably the Worlds Best
Irish Cream Liqueurs
Irish Cream Liqueurs represent the natural fusion of two of Ireland’s finest products – great Irish whiskey and superb quality rich dairy cream. Irish people have been combining their cream and whiskey in various ways for many years but it was only in 1974 that technology caught up with tradition and the means became available to offer this unique drink to the rest of the world.
This development in technology was the greatest innovation in the alcoholic beverage industry in the last century and it hit a niche, in particular with young female consumers looking for a low alcohol, delicious tasting product.
In the four short decades since, Irish Cream Liqueur has established itself as the Number 1 seller within the Liqueur category worldwide and as a staple seasonal favourite for families around the globe.
The key to the international success of Irish cream liqueurs is their truly unique combination of taste, quality, heritage, and Irishness.
Taste and quality are of paramount importance and are inextricably linked. Irish whiskey has a deserved reputation around the world for its superior quality and purity. It cannot be made in any country other than Ireland and is subject to stringent requirements in terms of ingredients and process.
Ireland’s cream and dairy produce generally enjoy an equally strong global reputation. As an island nation on Europe’s Atlantic seaboard, Ireland’s temperate climate and soil is superbly suited to dairy production. To all intents and purposes, our naturally grass-fed cows live in free-range conditions and this is reflected in the quality and taste characteristics of our milk.
At Terra Spirits & Liqueurs, we only use the freshest cream, with it typically taking a mere 48 hours from cow to bottle and through the use of world class technology the cream is naturally preserved by the alcohol.
Experience and expertise gained over millennia by Irish farmers and distillers are brought together to create a product with an inimitable taste which is as natural to Ireland as butter or beef.

Molly’s is a prime example of a superior Irish Cream that exemplifies the use of quality of fresh Irish Dairy Cream, fine aged Irish Whiskey and the best cream liqueur technology available.
