About this deal

The amarula tree, indigenous to the southern latidues of sub-equitorial Africa and known by the locals as the elephant tree as it is flavoured by the elephants for its fruit. Perfect for any occasion, Amarula Gin is sure to inspire strong emotions and create memorable moments. The fruit is hand picked and the locals then wash destone, pulp and cool the fruit before it is distilled into marula fruit spirit. From the makers of Amarula Cream Liqueur, this African Gin is based on marula fruit spirit distilled with juniper berries, orange peel and blossom, and grains of paradise.

To be eligible for a full refund you must contact us to inform us of any issue within 24 hours of receipt.Grown wild, each fruit is carefully hand-picked, washed, destoned, pulped and cooled to ensure the best quality, before being distilled into marula fruit spirit. This natural, wild fruit cream liqueur is produced using fresh cream and the unique fruit exracts from the Amarula tree. The crucial point of difference for Amarula's gin is that its base spirit is actually made with fermented and distilled Marula fruit rather than a neutral grain or potato spirit base. Made with a base of marula fruit spirit, along with a whole herd of botanicals, including grains of paradise and orange blossom, which are steeped in the spirit before being distilled, it’s superb splashed into quality tonic.

It worked really well in a Tropical Fizz, a pineapple based cocktail and brought a hint of the exotic to the cold north of England!

The marula fruit grows in South Africa and is a favourite of the elephant herds who drawn by the scent of the ripe fruit, gather beneath the trees. Distilled with a base of marula fruit spirit and a collection of carefully curated botanicals including grains of paradise and orange blossom, this spirit is perfect paired with premium tonic. I normally like to try my first taste of a gin, with an unflavoured light tonic water which enables me to taste the full flavour of the gin and this Amarula tasting was no exception. There is just one place on earth where the Marula trees grow – across Africa’s subequatorial plains. The long connection between the Royal Navy and rum can be traced back to 1655 and Vice-Admiral William Penn's expedition to the West Indies.

The botanicals, however, are very traditional, with grains of paradise, orange peel, orange blossom alongside the juniper making this 43% South African gin a treat. Made with a base of marula fruit spirit, along with a whole herd of botanicals, including grains of paradise and orange blossom, which are steeped in the spirit before being distilled, it's superb splashed into quality tonic. Amarula's fascinating gin is produced with genuine African Marula fruit that is grown wild, carefully collected, cleansed, and sorted to assure the finest quality fruit spirit. The level of spice from the grains of paradise is enough to enliven without turning the gin overly spicy.
