Malfy Orange Gin
Volume: 70cl * ABV 41%
This Italian orange gin is bright and vibrant in both colour and taste. It has an aroma of orange blossom and the flavour of juicy, sweet Sicilian blood oranges. Made with blood orange peels and Italian juniper which were first infused in Italian grain spirit for 36 hours. Lemon peel, grapefruit peel, angelica root, orris root and coriander were then distilled in a stainless steel vacuum still for five hours.
Master Distiller Beppe Ronco describes the taste as 'bursting with citrus flavours throughout' and says that 'the experience begins with orange blossom enveloping the nose whilst on the palate crisp, citrus-forward, raspberry-like flavours are nicely balanced by classic herbal notes. To finish, a final burst of sweet orange zest offers a surprisingly smooth, well-rounded mouth feel.' We think it's just like drinking sunshine!
Malfy con Limone is also suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
Did you know that gin was invented in Italy? Italian monks are thought to have used juniper berries as flavourings in distilled spirits way back in the 11th Century! Juniper grows in the wild across Italy and is what gives gin its characteristic flavour.
