I had the wonderful opportunity to try the Amarula Cream Liqueur and I couldn't wait to share my experience with you.
One thing I learned from drinking this liqueur is that Amarula is made from a fruit called "marula" found in Africa. Found in South Africa (as well as Botswana, Swaziland, Namibia, and Zimbabwe) marula trees grown in abundance. They are beautiful trees and drought-resistant. The fruit from the tree (the marula fruit) is a sweet, tropical fruit. It has a citrus tang and a creamy taste. Actually it makes for a perfect liqueur in my opinion.
Amarula isn't just for their incredible liqueur. They also do amazing things for the region. From the women's job creation project in Western Cape communities, Amarula Elephant Research program, and so much more, there is an even bigger reason to purchase this Amarula liqueur than just it's amazing taste.

Now, to the most important part, the liqueur! I have to tell you this was unbelievable. One of my biggest complaints about liqueurs in general is that they can be too sweet and I have a hard time enjoying it. But this wasn't the case. It had such a light, sweet flavor and yet it was so rich at the same time. It goes down smooth and it's guaranteed to please your family, friends, or guests. It also would make for an excellent gift, or thank you gift of some kind. Over all, this is the best liqueur I've had in a while and I promise this is better than Bailey's ANY DAY. I wish they had this in every store.
The price? I would say it's about the cost I would personally usually purchase for liqueur's. It isn't out of range, in my opinion. I did a little hunt online for you to see where you can buy this and at BevMo.com, you can purchase this for $21.99 but unfortunately it's out of stock right now! I actually signed up to receive notifications for when they get it next. I was actually lucky enough to find this liqueur near ME (I live in Oregon) and so I'm very happy about this. If you want to purchase this amazing liqueur, I highly recommend checking out Wine-Searcher.com. I made it easy for you, too, so just click on this link.
Overall, I was so pleased with this drink. I definitely plan to purchase and enjoy this again. It was gently sweet, rich tasting, and far better than anything I've tasted in a while.
