Carolans Irish Cream is a unique tasting, high quality Irish cream liqueur. The fact that cream liqueurs originated in Ireland is no coincidence since Ireland has a great tradition in producing fine quality dairy products and distilling spirits. (The oldest whiskey distillery in the world was founded in Ireland in 1608.)
It is the marrying of these two traditions with Irish expertise that lies behind the success story of Carolans. Carolans combines Irish spirits and whiskey with rich double cream and derives its superior taste from the subtle blending of flavours, principally honey.
Honey is particularly appropriate for a drink produced in Clonmel – the word "Clonmel" is derived from the Gaelic "Cluain Meala" which means Vale of Honey.
Clonmel, in County Tipperary, is also set in Ireland’s famed "Golden Vale", probably the best natural dairyland in the world. Only the best suppliers are considered, since the cream is such a vital component (making up nearly 40% of the product). It is this uncompromising quality and use of the finest cream that gives Carolans such a smooth consistency.
