Malfy Gin is adding a Sicilian blood orange beauty to its UK range. Con Arancia is made from (you guessed it) oranges and botanicals such a grapefruit peel, lemon peel, orris root and coriander.
The dark orange-coloured gin is a labour of love for master distillers Beppe Ronco and Denis Muni. First, the orange peel and juniper are infused in Italian grain spirit for 36 hours. Five botanicals are then distilled in a stainless steel vacuum still for five hours.
‘After months of experimentation and hard work, we’re excited to introduce Malfy Gin con Arancia to the UK,’ Elwyn Gladstone said. The founder and owner said the expression is a go-to for long serves and cocktails.
‘The timing of this release is a direct response to the UK’s particular interest in discovering and experimenting with Italian culture and produce, with gin at the very heart of that,’ Gladstone added.
