05 Apr Malfy Gin, the taste of Summer
This gin is refreshingly delicious. It was a lifesaver in the Kruger National Park this Summer. I enjoyed this refreshing drink under the African sun. This gorgeous drink tastes like Summer!
Is there anything better than a refreshing G&T, garnished with pomegranate jewels, after a long day at the office? I’m almost done with this bottleand I’m so looking forward to the next one.
Let’s get on to the technical side of this refreshing drink…
Premium drinks company, Truman & Orange, are fast becoming known as the company that consistently rises to the challenge of providing beautifully-made drinks for today’s discerning drinkers. Having recently launched Mazzatti Birra Superiore and Mionetto Prosecco, both quintessentially Italian drinks, their best-known Italian offering is Malfy Italian Gin.
Hot on the heels of Malfy Con Arancia, the latest offering from the Torino Distillati is just in time for Summer: Malfy Gin Rosa.
As the name suggests, the gin is a delightful pink colour and, typical of the exceptional, Italian quality we’ve come to expect from Malfy, no detail has been spared. Presented in a frosted bottle decorated with traditional Italian glass painting techniques, the liquid bears testament to the centuries of experience and heritage behind the Vergnano family and the traditional pot stills used to produce it. Malfy Gin Rosa expertly combines classic Southern Italian citrus, Pompelmo Rosa (pink grapefruit) with Rabarbaro (rhubarb), which is grown widely and used in many classic Italian drinks such as Aperol.
Juniper, grapefruit skins and rhubarb are infused in Italian grain spirit for 36 hours which results in Malfy Gin Rosa’s beautiful blush pink colour. This infusion is then blended with a second distillate of juniper, coriander, lemon peel, orange peel, Angelica root and Orris root for hours before finally being blended with pure, natural spring water from the Rocce Azzurre spring in the heart of the MonViso Mountain in the Cottian Alps.
Available at all good bottle stores nationwide for approximately R419 per bottle, Malfy Gin Rosa expertly balances the bittersweet grapefruit and rhubarb flavours, with subtle juniper to offer a mouth-wateringly complex finish. The Southern Italian citrus aromas and hints of juniper, coupled with the pink blush colour of the liquid make Malfy Gin Rosa perfect for a wide variety of Summer cocktails… Always garnished with a slice of grapefruit and sipped among friends! Saluti!
