You might be familiar with Malfy Gin Con Limone, the gin that captures the Italian dream holiday in a bottle. Malfy Gin Originale continues this Italian story, but this time the focus is on the mountains of Northern Italy. The style of the bottle is a perfect match to their Con Limone, but instead of the beautiful turquoise sea, the base of the bottle gets colour inspiration from the lakes found on Monviso mountain.
Malfy Gin Originale, 41% ABV, takes you back to the origins of Italian gin making. It was Italian monks who first started to distil juniper berries and other botanicals with alcohol.
Malfy Gin Originale has a wonderful balance of eight botanicals. The juniper is from Tuscany and the lemon peel from Amalfi lemons. Also coriander, cassia, orange and grapefruit peel, orris and angelica root are all from Italy, of course! Monviso provides the spring water for this gin. In fact, the mountain has the highest-altitude spring water in Italy.
Malfy Gin Originale is a classic juniper-forward gin, with a hint of earthiness. And it wouldn’t be Malfy without subtle citrus notes. Enjoy neat to warm up during your hike in the mountains, or make a G&T and garnish with citrus peel. Mediterranean tonic water helps to bring out the herbal notes and balance the citrus.
If you love a Martini, try 4 parts of Malfy Gin Originale and 1 part of Italian dry vermouth. Garnish with a lemon twist or an Italian olive. For me, though, it works wonders in a Negroni.
Why not add a Malfy Gin Originale to your Christmas list! Or if you can’t wait for that long you can order it from here.
