Coole Swan Superior Irish Cream Liqueur

Halloween is over so the holiday season has begun, right? Even if you’re not quite ready for all the sights and sounds of the holidays, we can definitely enjoy the spirits of the season! This week we’re taking a little break from vino and sipping on Coole Swan Superior Irish Cream, a rich and silky liqueur that has become our favourite liquid dessert. This is a big, delicious step up if you’re an Irish cream fan. It’s a bit of splurge, but you’ll taste its ‘superior’ nature in every sip.

Tasting Notes: Blending Single Malt Irish whiskey, Belgian white chocolate and fresh Irish cream, Coole Swan pours like a rich, white cream. Serving it chilled, the first sip delivers frothy layers of buttercream, white chocolate and hints of vanilla that hold through a long, long finish.

Enjoy With: Ice cream, over ice or simply chilled on its own. Try using it to make a chocolate martini, a delicious grown-up milkshake, or use it to make the ultimate Irish coffee.

Style: A chocolate-sweet, full-bodied Irish cream liqueur.

Terroir/Region: Coole Swan is hand-crafted in the homeland of cream liqueurs – Ireland. Every batch is blended with care in County Cavan, Ireland, the same place the first batch was made. Irish Cream liqueurs like Coole Swan are now served all around the world, inspiring countless cocktails, especially the classic Irish Coffee. Canada happens to be one of the top appreciators of Irish Creams, so you can feel some pride in our collective good taste as you sip!

Producer: Coole Swan was founded as a family company and is still run by husband and wife team Philip Brady and Mary Sadlier who created the original recipe after 231 tries! They use only the finest natural ingredients – no artificial colours or flavours are added, making Coole Swan 30% less sweet than the other Irish Creams on the market!

AvailabilityCoole Swan Superior Irish Cream Liqueur is available in the Liqueur section of your local LCBO or you may find it on a display table with other holiday favourites. Of course, it is also available online if you prefer to shop from home. Pick up a bottle to enjoy as the weather gets coole, er... cool.
