Ott, a lifelong traveler who spent his childhood in Africa, was inspired by Amarula Cream’s exotic profile to craft his signature cocktails with unusual ingredients such as tobacco, sandalwood, gunpowder green tea, and lychees. The notable guests who enjoyed the designer cocktails and atmosphere at Esquire SOHO this season included America Ferrera, Vanessa Williams and other members of the cast of Ugly Betty; actor Peter Sarsgaard; reality television hosts Carson Kressley and Ted Allen; director Michael Moore; and musical talents John Legend, Gavin DeGraw, and One Republic.

The Amarula Cream cocktails created by Ott complemented the stylish interior design of the Esquire SOHO Apartment, a spectacular penthouse with amenities such as a sound studio equipped with Gibson guitars, wrap-around balconies with home spas overlooking the Manhattan skyline, a master bedroom outfitted by Hugo Boss, and billiards table with a built-in flat screen. Each room had its own designer, including South African Geoffrey Bradfield, who created a floating bar in exotic woods and Steuben crystal for Amarula Cream.

About Amarula Cream Liqueur

Amarula Cream originates from South Africa where the marula tree grows wild on the Savannah and attracts many animals, particularly elephants, which inspire the distinctive artwork of the Amarula bottle. To produce Amarula Cream, the marula fruit is gathered and the flesh pulped, sweetened and fermented. The resulting “marula spirit” is matured in oak casks for two years, and finally blended with fresh cream to create a smooth distinctive cream liqueur. The suggested retail price of Amarula Cream is $19.99. Amarula is exclusively produced by Distell (South Africa) and imported by Aveniu Brands, www.aveniubrands.com, a national importer based in Baltimore, MD.
