When one thinks of cream liqueurs, the first thing that comes to mind are generally Irish creams. Baines has created their own version using the liqueur that is their claim to fame - Pacharan. Where other makers of Irish cream blend Irish whiskey with cream and other flavors (such as chocolate, vanilla, coffee, etc), Baines simply combines the fruity sweetness of its famous Pacharan with cream. The result: a plum-like flavored cream that is as rich as it is satisfying.
Pacharan is quite famous in Spain. Made in the Basque region of Spain, it uses macerated sloe berries that are aged in barrels of chestnut or oak for a minimum of 4 months. This liqueur does not age well - it is best consumed immediately.
As this cream is pacharan-based and it is quite sweet and rich, this decadent beverage is best served in lieu of dessert or as an after-dinner drink. It is heavy on the palate and warming in the throat. It is rich, velvety, and flavorful - the perfect way to end a delicious meal.
Store your unopened bottle in a cool, dry, and dark place safe from constant vibration. Keep your bottle horizontal in a wine rack or cellar to retain the moistness of the cork. The ideal temperature for storage is between 7 to 15°C. Once opened, a bottle will be good for 3 to 5 days standing upright in the refrigerator.
