From tree to bottle, it takes over two years to create each bottle of Amarula Cream Liqueur. The key ingredient, marula fruit, is considered one of Africa's botanical treasures. This exotic fruit, harvested by hand, gives Amarula its distinctive taste and smooth, rich texture. The tree grows naturally across sub-equitorial Africa. The tree cannot be cultivated and the marula fruits are only selected when they are perfectly ripe and yellow.
