Baileys Launches New Flavour For Christmas

Baileys has released a new flavour of its cream liqueur in time for the festive season of 2020, and it’s received some mixed reactions.

We’re all accepting that Christmas won’t be the same this year as it has been in previous years, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be the same tempting and indulgent treats available to us if we want them.

As the Liverpool Echo recently reported, Baileys has released a new flavour of its cream liqueur in time for the festive season of 2020, and it’s received some mixed reactions.

The limited edition flavour for this Christmas is apple pie, with the brand revealing that the tipple has “a delicious blend of fresh apple pie flavours, vanilla ice cream and hints of cinnamon and spice”.

Many of the reviews left on Snack News and Reviews and shared by the news provider come from people who haven’t tried the drink though. Several have commented that they don’t fancy the sound of the beverage.

One even commented: “The strawberries and cream has put me off for life,” referring to a previous limited edition Baileys flavour.

There are others who have sampled the drink and who are recommending it, so whether you want to try the apple pie flavoured Baileys or not is likely to come down to personal taste.

Of course, it isn’t only brands like Baileys that release special flavours for Christmas. Many coffee shops also go all out to create festive beverages, with Starbucks renowned for its warming winter drinks.

Last month, The Star revealed that all the usual festive favourites, including the toffee nut, gingerbread and eggnog lattes, are all back. As is a new and indulgent truffle deluxe hot chocolate.

ePURE Members Produce 5.6bn Litres Of Ethanol In 2019

European renewable ethanol association (ePURE) members produced 5.6 billion litres of ethanol and 5.33 million tonnes of co-products in 2019, according to newly released data from the association.

An ePURE press release confirms the vital role that European renewable ethanol biorefineries play in achieving EU Green Deal objectives for reducing emissions.

From the total ethanol output from ePure members last year, over 82 per cent was for fuel use, which brings over 72 per cent greenhouse gas savings compared to fossil fuels. From the remaining ethanol production, 9.2 per cent was for food and beverage uses, and 8.5 per cent was for industrial applications, including the manufacture of hand sanitiser.

As well as renewable ethanol, ePURE members’ refineries produced 5.33 million tonnes of co-products, such as 3.83 million tonnes of high-protein, GMO-free animal feed and 0.8 million tonnes of captured CO2.

Nearly all (over 99 per cent) of the feedstock used in the production of ethanol by ePure members, for example, cereals, sugars, wastes and residues, was grown or sourced in Europe.

Emmanuel Desplechin, Secretary-General of ePURE, the European renewable ethanol association, said: “Europe’s renewable ethanol industry continues to grow its contribution to EU Green Deal objectives: producing low-carbon fuel to reduce emissions from road transport and high-protein, GMO-free animal feed to reduce the need for imported soybean meal”.

ePURE represents 36 members, including 19 producers, with around 50 plants in 16 EU member states, accounting for about 85 per cent of EU renewable ethanol production.
