Malfy Gin is made on the outskirts of Turin by Torino Distillati. Historically, the area of Moncalieri was traditionally famed for the production of quality liqueurs. Take vermouth for example with Carpano, Cinzano and Martini Rossi all based nearby. The distillery was first established in 1906 by Fratelli Ferrero di Riccardo, a Piedmontese family known for operating in the wine and vermouth business. Saving a few twists and turns of history here, in the 60s it was taken over by the Canadian company Seagram.
In 1992 Carlo Vergnano, who was at the time the technical and operational director of Seagram Italia, bought the Moncalieri plant from Seagram in a management buy-out operation, and set up Torino Distillati.
With the help of his wife Piera and his daughter Rita, Carlo Vergnano still runs the company today, with the help two key workers Denis Muni (the chemist and distiller) and Beppe Ronco (engineer and distiller) have created a tight nit group centred around family.
To create Malfy Gin Con Limone, they take a careful mix of Lemon peel both Amalfi Coast Lemons and Sicilian lemons and steep in wheat based alcohol before being pressed in a traditional basket press. This citrus heavy extract is then distilled with Tuscan juniper, coriander, cassia, liquorice, grapefruit peel and orange peel.
Delightful citrus and juniper on the nose with complex flavours of anise, citrus and coriander.
Perfect with a premiums tonic and a slice of lemon. Classic!
