Five Farms - Single Batch Irish Cream Liqueur

Whether celebrating St. Patrick's Day or simply enjoying a nice creamy cocktail, Irish Cream Liqueur has always been a favorite of mine. To be honest, I'm a fan of cream spirits in general but while there are big names on the market, few folks manage to bring forth a small batch experience the same way you can find with traditionally distilled spirits. That's why I was excited to come across Five Farms and their collection of family-owned farms in Ireland.

Despite being relatively unknown, Five Farms Irish Cream Liqueur was awarded the Chairman's Trophy at the 2018 Ultimate Spirits Challenge with a 97 score, the highest that an Irish Cream Liqueur has ever received in that competition. Five Farms is a true farm-to-table product that is crafted from single batches of fresh cream combined with premium Irish Whiskey within 48 hours of being collected to create an authentic Irish Cream Liqueur. The cream is sourced entirely from five family-owened farms in County Cork with a heritage that goes back for generations.

I case your are thinking that Irish Cream Cocktails are limited only to adding it to some coffee, here's are some delightful recipes that elevate the spirit to a whole other level.
