While the other Malfy Gins showcase varieties of Italian citrus (lemon, grapefruit and blood orange), ‘Originale’ offers a more traditional gin profile. The keynote here is wild Italian juniper along with five other botanicals combined with Monviso mountain water extracted at the village of Crissolo. Established in 1906, the family run distillery is in Moncalieri, just outside the city of Torino – an area famed for its fine wines and spirits. Carlo, his wife Piera and their children Rita and Valter run the show. Beppe Ronco and Denis Muni are the Master Distillers. Their label even has its own ‘quality control’ stamp: “G.Q.D.I.” stands for ‘Gin di QUALITÀ DISTILLATO in Italia’ – a guarantee of quality and origin. 41% Alc./Vol.
Malfy Gin is an Italian gin is made using a selection of six botanicals, as well as an infusion of Italian coastal lemons, including some from the Amalfi coast!
While Malfy Gin Con Limone showcases Italian coastal lemons, their Originale expression showcases a juniper-forward flavour profile. Using wild Italian juniper alongside five further botanicals, the Malfy Gin distillers bring Originale down to bottling strength using water from the Monviso mountain extracted at the village of Crissolo.
