#FavouriteThings Holiday Gift Suggestions – Amarula Made from Africa

Amarula is a premium spirit with an exotic natural taste, made from the fruit of the sacred Marula tree that grows wild and uncultivated in the subequatorial regions of Africa. The Marula fruits are handpicked by local communities before being naturally fermented and distilled in copper pot stills. The spirit is then matured for 2 years in aged oak barrels, which imparts the wood spice characteristics of vanilla and caramel into the spirit liquid. These distinctive flavours are naturally enhanced by the addition of cream, to create a rich and velvety smooth taste. Each bottle is a piece of Africa, made to be savoured.
