Distilled from the fermented fruit of the Marula tree, a native of the African plains. The spirit is aged for three years, then blended with cream. If you like Bailey's you should give this a try. IWSC 2012 - Gold Medal - Liqueurs

Bought a bottle recently due to an offer. Wonderful stuff, very like Baileys although I prefer the Amarula. Wor Lass' daughter is a confirmed Bailey's fan and she liked it so much she nicked the bottle. Well worth the candle.

The shelf life of something like this would be around 12 months (6 once opened). They may last a bit longer, but we wouldn't recommend drinking any that are older than this.
If you would still like to give it a go, open the bottle and check for a yeasty/sour milk smell. If your still unsure, a small taste should reveal whether this is bad. Having said that, we still advise against drinking this if you have had it for more than 12 months.

I purchased two bottles of Amarula Fruit Cream in Cape Town International Airport in January 2009 and used one of them two years ago and other bottle was kept for later use. How long can a bottle last? Can I consume it now after three years from the date of purchase? Can anyone or the company help me with an advice please? If consume now, will my stomach get upset?

On the nose, a very light aroma of the exotic Marula fruit makes its way through your nostrils, with the taste almost bursting as it hits your throat. A sweet tang to it, it covers your palate nicely and gives off a slow release of Marula that lasts. This is a perfect serve over ice, but wouldn’t look out-of-place in a coffee, a B52 or even in a fruity Martini.

It is the smoothest, most interesting liquer I have tasted. I had it first (and bought it) on a Royal Carrribean cruise and since then a friend brought me back a large bottle while she was on another cruise. Now I finised that one and want to buy another one (or two).Ann Marie Sullivan, Brandon, FL, USA

Char10, whether it's safe or not is down to your own judgement, but for such a cheap bottle I don't think it's worth the risk. This is a dairy product after all.

No it should not curdle. If it does you shouldn't drink it. Have a look at their website. My bottle has been open in a dark cupboard for a few years but hasn't curdles. Safe or not???

Amarula has a shelf life of up to two years. However, you should drink it up within 4 months from initial opening. Keep it at room temp.

I WAS A BAILEY'S fanactic; No more.

Bearing in mind that you got it in Cape town, it was probably affected by the heat - you don't know how long the bottle was on the shelf before you bought it.

Does Amarula curdle inside its sealed bottle? I purchased some from Duty Free at Cape Town International Airport and opened it the next day to find the cream all curdled and lumpy - not smooth as it purports to be. Anyone have any ideas on this?!
