Malfy Gin Rosa is distilled in a modern stainless steel still at the Torino Distillati near Turin – an area and distillery with a long history of spirit, wine and liqueur production. The Vergnano family bought the distillery in 1992 and have expanded production and distribution successfully since, launching in the UK in 2016. Named ‘Rosa’ meaning ‘pink’ in Italian, the gin features Sicilian pink grapefruit peel, and rhubarb distillate is added after distillation to provide the consistent pink hue.
It should come as no surprise that the folks behind Malfy Gin are very talented at incorporating citrus of all varieties into their gin. The Con Arancia
and Con Limone
are proof enough, but if you need even more convincing, say hello to Malfy Gin Rosa!
This ace Italian gin is built around the awesomeness of Sicilian pink grapefruit, and features a hint of rhubarb too. This should make for some incredible summer drinks. We’re particular fond of this one in a Gin Fizz, but it also makes a marvellous Martini, too!
Malfy Gin Rosa delivers an explosion of aromas and flavour, with fruity pink grapefruit being unmistakably prominent throughout. On the nose it is joined by notes of lemon peel and sweet rhubarb, while on the palate you’re reminded that this is a gin as juniper, coriander seeds, angelica root and orris root combine classically. The balance of flavour has been carefully achieved, avoiding too much bitterness from the pink grapefruit but not reaching the sickly sweetness of many fruit-led gins. When mixed the flavour develops further and holds strong for a bright, crisp and summery Gin and Tonic, which can be garnished well with rosemary or lime.
