Distilled with juniper and five other botanicals, Malfy Gin is infused with Italian coastal lemons adding some Italian flair for South African gin lovers.
Always eager to satisfy my palate with another great gin, I was very happy to hear about the Malfy Gin that recently hit our shores.
Malfy Gin is produced by the Vergnano family in their very own distillery in Moncalierie just outside of Torino, Italy, a very well-known area for fine wines and spirits.
The design of the bottle is eye-catching and something I instantly fell in love with. The blue on the bottle represents the Mediterranean, and the yellow pays tribute to the citrus used in making this gin. Malfy’s bottle has been created using traditional Italian glass-design techniques, and the stopper is made in Italy from real oak.
The lemons used to infuse it are from the Amalfy coast, from which Malfy’s name is derived. These Italian coastal lemons give Malfy the lemon-zest aroma of a freshly picked lemon. Italian juniper and five other botanicals, including coriander, angelica and cassia bark are also used in Malfy’s production and help create this special gin’s delicious and refreshing bite.
Infused with lemon, Malfy Gin can be prepared just as you like your gin. I love mine with tonic water and a slice of lemon or grapefruit as seen in images to enhance the already infused lemon flavour in the Malfy Gin.
Malfy Gin is available in all major retail chains and independent liquor stores around the country in a 750 ml bottle and will cost ± R350 per bottle, which I think is really affordable for such an exquisite gin.
