Amarula as the African original gift

Amarula Cream
Creamy and delicious, Amarula conjures up scenes of Africa in all its exotic splendour, where  game roams across open plains under wide skies, far from the everyday pressures of urban routine.
No wonder Amarula makes such a well-received gift, so look out for festive season options from liquor outlets such as Makro and Pick n Pay liquor. There is a lantern pack that comes with a 750ml bottle of Amarula, selling for around R150. The cylindrical lantern is designed to let you insert a candle to cast a warm glow. Amarula is also presented in an impressive tin for R120, or boxed with two gorgeous glasses, available for around R140.  These gifting options are on offer at Makro, Ultra Liquors, Pick n Pay, Liquor City and Overland.   

Chocolate-lovers will enjoy Amarula chocolates that sell for around R32 for a box of 10, from the major national retailers such as Clicks, Spar, Pick n Pay and Checkers. 

Also look out for Makro's exclusive offer on an Amarula ripple tray with four glasses. The chain has another amazing promotion: buy four of the new 200ml size bottles and receive a complimentary Amarula cutlery holder.

Meanwhile, at Ultra Liquors, there's a very chic Out of Africa style leather cooler filled with a 750ml bottle of Amarula. 

Also, when you buy three 200ml bottles from Overland, your purchase comes with a complimentary designer handbag. 

Pick 'n Pay and Checkers are both offering Amarula with a coffee plunger and ground coffee as a combo.  

What about self-gifting?

“Be on the look-out for Amarula in the new 200ml size bottle, designed to hold two single serves,” says South Africa marketing manager for Amarula, Christelle Bester.   

"Whether you are sharing or treating yourself, the new 200ml size is all about convenience," she adds. "It's the right size for a teeny bit of indulgence to start the evening and may be just the taste you're after to share over a quick catch-up with friends."
Retailing for around R28 to R30, the 200ml Amarula is available from style bars, licensed restaurants and most major stockists countrywide, as is the 750ml Amarula that retails for around R85.
