Marula, the iconic fruit of Africa, has been enjoyed by man and elephants alike over the millennia.
These majestic Bushveld trees produce an abundance of fruits in the African mid-summer months of January and February. The antics of elephants that have overindulged in fallen fermenting Marulas are legendary.
Marula has a hard-to-pin-down flavour that combines a clear tangy edge with a rich almost sweet citrus. The langorous scent of Marula is utterly distinctive and the gin delivers a luscious Marula bouquet that primes the palate for the soft tang that floods the mouth. Think passion fruit mingled with lime.
Tasting Notes: Clear Juniper creates the backbone, and floral depth is provided by Bushveld Wild Pear, Dombeya rontundifolia, flowers from Acacia caffra the Bushveld’s delightful Sweet-thorn Acacia, and Buddleja salvifolia.
