As sunshine goes well with blue skies so summer goes hand in hand with great food and refreshing drinks

In the same breath, the label ‘Made in Italy’ pairs most naturally with quality and style. Malfy Gin, a unique family-made Italian gin, is distilled on the outskirts of Turin which is traditionally known for its production of quality liqueurs. It’s the infusion of the famous Italian coastal lemons, including some from the Amalfi Coast, that gives Malfy Gin its name and distinctly accentuated citrus character. This luxury gin comes in three flavour profiles that each match the mood of the season to G&T perfection; Con Limone (coastal lemon), Gin Rosa (pink grapefruit) and Con Arancia (blood orange) all offer a zesty refreshing taste.
