The Malfy Bottle is decorated using traditional Italian Glass design technique and the stopper is made in Italy from real oak. The Malfy Crest is an interpretation of a famous rowing race held between the four ancient kingdoms of Italy each year. The Malfy Blue represents the Mediterranean and the yellow represents the Italian lemons grown on the coast which gives Malfy the aroma of the zest from a lemon just picked from a tree. 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. A wonderful blend of everything Italian.
While popularly thought of as a Dutch invention, it is in Italy that the true origins of gin can be found. From as far back as the 11th Century, Italian monks made a crude spirit infused with juniper, eventually even coming to believe in it as a medicine to combat the Black Death.
This long tradition of distillation was still in practice when, in 1906, Fratelli Ferrero di Riccardo, a family from Piedmont established in the wine and vermouth business, founded a distillery in Moncalieri, just outside the city of Torino. The distillery was purchased in 1992 by Carlo Vergnano and remains a family owned operation run by Carlo, his wife Piera and their daughter Rita.
Since then the distillery’s brand, Malfy, has become internationally famous for its range of premium gins. Malfy now produces four superb spirits: the Originale (think traditional dry gin), the Con Limone (made using a citrus extract, this is gin meets limoncello), the Gin Rosa (Sicilian pink grapefruit) and the Con Arancia (Sicilian blood orange).
