A bright and fresh Gin that tastes like southern Italy in a glass.

Malfy Gin was developed by premium Spirits company Biggar and Leith. The concept was pure and simple. Since Italy is understood to be the ancestral home of Gin, Malfy Gin (named after the Amalfy Coast) would produce Gin in Italy using fresh, natural, Italian ingredients. Things went swimmingly well, and the brand and production was picked up by Chivas Brothers, a division of Pernod Richard. There are currently four versions of these Italian-themed Gins and all should be sampled profusely. 

You may know that the word "rosa" mean "rose" in most Latin languages. But Malfy Gin Rosa does not get its light pink color from rose petals. This Italian grain Spirit is infused with Sicilian pink grapefruit zest, juniper, lemon zest, angelica root, orris root, and coriander. But it gets the delicate coloring from a separate distillate of rhubarb added at the end. The result is a bright and refreshing take on Gin that pairs exceptionally well with Prosecco in cocktails and with soft cheeses when taken with tonic.

Smartass Corner:
The Dutch and English would debate the point — well, they might actually get pretty angry about it — but Gin was invented in Italy during the 11th century when cloistered monks added Italian Ginepro (juniper) to their distillation. Dutch Genever came about 200 years later. Let the fighting begin.

Juniper berry is the main ingredient of Gin. They are usually picked wild by independent workers throughout Europe and sold via distributors to Gin makers worldwide.
How much Tonic is in a Gin & Tonic? The ideal proportions for a perfect Gin & Tonic is one part Gin and two parts Tonic.
London Dry Gin is not always from London. Gin does not have the same geographical restrictions as Spirits such as Cognac, Scotch, or Tequila. Only a tiny handful of London Dry Gins are actually made in the city.
Gin gets its dominant flavour from juniper berries. As with many other spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as medicine. Yeah right!
As with many other Spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as a medicine—to battle malaria.
Hardcore Gin lovers say the word Martini should never be preceded by Vodka, lobster, or pomegranate. They say the original and the only real Martini consists of Gin, Vermouth & olives, period!
