The mystical marula or elephant tree (Sclerocarrya birrea) is found exclusively in sub-equatorial Africa.

It bears a small, oval fruit, the flesh of which contains a large, very hard stone.

The marula fruits ripen from mid-January to mid-March. During this time, the fruits get their unmistakable taste and rich yellow color.

Amarula Marula Fruit Cream is made from the fruits of this mystical and coveted tree.

The ripe fruits are collected and the flesh is removed from the shell. They are harvested by the local people and delivered to the production site or central collection points.

Damaged or green fruits that still have to ripen are sorted out on a sorting belt.

In a special machine, rotating blades separate the pulp from the hard seeds.

The resulting fruit pulp is separated from the seeds.

The marula pulp is then pumped into refrigerated stainless steel tanks, which are maintained at a constant temperature of below 8°C to prevent fermentation.

Next, the pulp is poured into a tanker and taken to the cellars of the Distell Distillery in Stellenbosch at a constant temperature of below 8°C.

In these cellars, the mash is transferred to fermentation tanks, in which a pure yeast culture is added to initiate the fermentation process.

The conditions are similar to those of winemaking.

After the fermentation process is complete, the clear marula wine is transferred to the distillery.

During fermentation, which takes place at 18°C ​​- 20°C, the natural fructose of the marulas is converted into alcohol.

This process takes about 7 to 10 days. During this phase, the solid fruit particles settle to the bottom of the tank.

Marula wine is distilled in copper stills and later aged in small oak barrels to create the characteristic, flavorful marula spirit.

After two years of maturation, the final step in the production of Amarula Cream is to add the best fresh cream to the distillate until a smooth, even consistency is achieved.

The process of adding cream meets the highest standards. The result is a deliciously rich and smooth cream product with an alcohol content of 17% ABV.

Amarula should be kept and drunk refrigerated. Enjoy this delicious drink pure or on ice, it also tastes fantastic in coffee or in ice-cold milk
