My partner is from Middelburg and we stopped by Amarula Lapa on our way back from the Kruger Park... We bought three bottles in the shop along with lots of glasses and other accessories... This liquor is fast becoming my favourite, it's subtle fruity undertones mixed with cream make this beverage ideal for any time of the day or night... I just have to remember not to drink the entire bottle in one go!

had this the first time when I visited my sister this month in Pett Bay SA it was wonderful I was not sure as she said it was like Bailey's but to me it is twice as nice will treat myself to a bottle or two

Mine has been opened since last Christmas and I have just poured out a capful and it looks fine, smells fine, tastes ok so I am assuming it's ok - I love it and I am not a big drinker at all

First time Amarula, yes it's very smooth, over ice, yes it's like baileys but we are enjoying our early Xmas present.

Amazing!!! Former housemate visited last week from Bagdad, Iraq brought it as a gift. Smooth, aromatic and delicious. Can't thank her enough.

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

LOVE my Amarula..just having some now actually as a boost while trying to write up my essays! It is way better than Baileys!

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???
