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.
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.
