Sometimes I cheat on wine with something creamy and dreamy, and when I tasted the new Magnum Cream Liqueur it was love at first sip.
Not only is it delicious, it is an ideal gift and a luxurious treat for festive season enjoyment.

You will love the stylishly packaged rich, velvety indulgence created from the finest Single Malt Scotch Whisky from Benriach Distillery and real Dutch cream. But don’t take my word for it; this yummy sipper was recently the recipient of a Gold medal at the 2014 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. Now in its 14th year, the San Francisco World Spirits Competition has gained a reputation as the leading gauge for spirits trends and top quality products as it has 39 of the world’s top professional palates serving as judges. The 2014 Competition received more entries than ever before with the number of submissions totalling 1474 from 41 states and 64 countries covering 89 classifications.
With Magnum Cream Liqueur, think delicious hints of caramel, chocolate and rich toffee. It is smooth and creamy with an alcohol content of 17%.
Magnum Cream is distinctively packaged in a stylish, reusable stainless steel flask with screw-top and handles. Served chilled, this is an ideal drink for after-dinner sipping. It’s best enjoyed poured over crushed ice, added to cocktails or even to coffee for a decadent twist.
Magnum Cream is widely available nationally at liquor retailers, the 1-litre flask retailing for approximately R129 and the 750ml flask at ±R109.

In the spirit of Halloween, try this Irish Ghost cocktail recipe:

  • 1 Tot Coffee Liqueur

Pour all ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice and shake until cold and frosty.
Strain into a cup with crushed ice.
