About: 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.
How it’s made: 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.
Flavours: 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.
Try One: Malfy Gin Rosa 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!
Available from: All good bottle stores nationwide for approximately R419 per bottle.
