I really fancy this new Baileys bottle (includes launch pictures)

I am a lager to man to the core although I have been known to enjoy the occasional bottle of wine. Apart from brandy I steer clear of all spirits as it has always left me with egg of my face. Or puke. My body refuses to accept some drinks.

Then there is the liqueur. The only one’s I have access to are Amarula and Bailey’s. My leaning to Amarula was mainly with the whole it’s an African product although they are both excellent products.

Well Baileys upped their game when they unveiled something new for punters last friday. Not a new flavor of a drink. Not a price reduction. Nope. It was a new shaped bottle. Now you want to wonder what on earth the shape of a bottle has to do with your drinking experience. However as I drunk the product on Wednesday night as I watched the Confed matches I have to say I was sold over. That drink was delicious and I wish I had an extra one but these things happen.

The new bottle takes a more feminine form but retains its original content.  I like that “feminine” part. I hope that drinking it makes me look more attractive to females as opposed to looking more feminine. We don’t want none of that.

The bottle was launched at an exclusive event in Nairobi, where its unveiling was a first for this market: a 3D projection against Teleposta Towers in the Central Business District that ensured the image of the new bottle was viewed widely across the city.

Here are some images and a video from that launch from our friends who run that brand.
