Distell has released details of the first line extension for its Amarula liqueur brand. Amarula Gold will be available globally during the first quarter of 2014, the South Africa-based firm said earlier this week.

The iteration is made from the same fermented and double-distilled wild marula fruit as Amarula Cream liqueur, but it contains no cream. The spirit is aged in French oak barrels for two years.

Distel declined to detail specific pricing and distribution information.

A share of the profits from Amarula Gold will help fund various environmental and social projects run by Distell’s African charity, The Amarula Trust.

Earlier this year, Distell reported a healthy rise in full-year profits and sales, helped by the acquisition of Burn Stewart Distillers in April and a weak Rand.
