Gin was invented in Italy in the 11th century by monks on the Salerno Coast. They added ginepro (juniper) and other botanicals to the alcohol – and gin was born. Malfy combines gin with citrus, which holds a special place in the Italian imagination and has enduring resonance in Italian culture. Travelers 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. 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.
Italian juniper and five other botanicals including coriander, angelica, and cassia bark give Malfy a delicious and refreshing bite. Perfect on the rocks, in a gin and tonic, or with your favorite Italian cocktail — a Negroni or Martini. (from Malfy)
