A nutty, citrus-driven cream liqueur made and flavored with Africa’s marula fruit.
Milky coffee color in the glass, with a decadent but not-too-heavy creaminess. On the nose, distinct citrusy note of orange that combines with rich vanilla and a toasty nuttiness. The palate is plush and mouth-filling yet manages never to feel too heavy or overpowering. Flavors of vanilla bean, creamsicle orange, Italian nougat Torrone, and a hint of toasted hazelnuts predominate.
Amarula pairs well with creamy desserts like ice cream, custards, and cheesecake, can be paired with chocolate, added to coffee for a boozy spin on an espresso, or can be used as an ingredient in savory dishes
The marula fruit is collected, sorted, and washed. The fruit is then crushed to extract the juice. The juice is fermented using yeast, which converts the sugar in the juice into alcohol. The fermented juice is then distilled to produce a clear spirit. The spirit is then blended with fresh cream and other ingredients to create Amarula cream liqueur.
The Marula trees cannot be cultivated. No matter how hard people have tried, these mysterious, African trees stay robustly true to their earthy roots and grow only where they choose. Fruits from Marula trees are carefully hand-pick only once a year, at the peak of summer.
