Proof66 Notes

Amarula Cream liqueur is made from the Africa Marula tree whose fruit is sometimes called "elephant juice." Indeed, according to an interview in the Tasting Panel Magazine (May, 2010), it is a favorite of elephants and cannot bu cultivated but must be wild-harvested. The fruit is yellow and looks a bit like a lemon. It is claimed to have aphrodisiac properties and is called the "marriage tree." The fruit is pulped locally and produces a wine, which is then distilled into a kind of brandy, aged for 2 years in oak, and blended with fresh cream for the liqueur. It is sometimes known as "the spirit of Africa."

4.5. Sweet with an alcohol undertone. In coffee it is the best.

I purchased multiple bottles of Amarula during my stay on the coast of Kenya. The cost there was anywhere from 1200ksh to 1800 ksh(Kenyan shillings). That is roughly $14 to $20 depending on whom you buy it from. It is a very creamy and sweet drink with unidentifiably fruity undertones and a fair amount of alcohol in it. Ive tried it in my coffee, with some ice cream, straight and on a full cup of ice and that is my favorite. It would probably be phenomenal if it were blend up in to some sort of shake or smoothie. if you see this at the store and you like creamy liquors this is for you. Apparently it is the second highest selling cream liquor in the world behind only baileys Irish cream.

A relative latecomer to the cream liqueur market, but one of the best we have ever had. Everyone who has tried it has liked it which is a first! Try it with, or on a friend.

This drink really has the "wow" factor. I've encountered more than a few folks who absolutely love it.
