A small batch premium gin from Italy distilled with juniper, lemons from the Italian coast and 5 other botanicals including juniper, coriander, angelica and cassia bark. Malfy Gin�s vivid, bright and enticing label hints at the citrus forward spirit it contains. The result is a refreshing gin with a strong lemon mouthfeel and with the classic juniper hit further back in comparison to most traditional gins. Perfectly suited to tonic, as well as making a fruity Negroni or Martini.

The Malfy bottle is decorated using a traditional Italian glass design technique and the stopper is made in Italy from real oak. The Malfy crest is an interpretation of a famous rowing race held between the four ancient kingdoms of Italy each year. The distinct blue represents the Mediterranean and the yellow represents the Italian lemons grown on the coast which gives Malfy the aroma of the zest from a lemon just picked from a tree. The G.Q.D.I. on the label means Gin di Qualit Distilato in Italia. This is a seal and mark of quality.

Country Of Origin: Italy
According to Malfy, gin was invented in Italy in the 11th century by monks on the Salerno coast. They added ginepro (juniper) and other botanicals to alcohol - and gin was born.

The distillery is in Moncalieri, just outside the city of Torino - an area famed for its production of wines and spirits. Established in 1906, Torino Distillati is run by the Vergnano family, with two distillers. Travellers have always been thrilled by the sight of citrus in Italy, where dark leaves and bright fruit seem to change the landscape, making the trees symbols of a sun-soaked, poetic vision of the country. Citrus holds a special place in the Italian imagination and has an enduring resonance in Italian culture.

Malfy uses a selection of coastal grown Italian lemons - some from Amalfi and some from Sicily to give the gin a fresh and zesty aroma. They take a careful mix of Lemon peel and steep it in wheat based alcohol before being pressed in a traditional basket press. This citrus heavy extract is then distilled with juniper (Tuscan), coriander, cassia, liquorice, grapefruit peel and orange peel.

The distillation itself happens in a custom made stainless still that is under vacuum for 3-4 hours at 60 degrees (the lower temperature it can distil at allows for the capture of the zesty flavours). Once distilled � the product is then chill filtered to remove some oil and bottled at 41% abv.
