While historically gin has been required to have a predominant taste of juniper, a cohort of products has emerged that champion other flavours. Some are full-strength spirits, while others are sweeter, lower-ABV liqueurs.
A fun expression for those with a bit of a sweet tooth, Malfy Con Limone brings a touch of Italian sunshine to wherever you are. The gin is made in Moncalieri, Italy, using Italian lemons – some of which are of the famed Amalfi variety– as well as Italian juniper from Tuscany.
Suggested serves: Enjoy as a Spritz during aperitivo hour by mixing with soda, topping with Prosecco and garnishing with blueberries, lemon and basil. Alternatively, go full throttle by mixing with homemade lemonade.
Sweet lemon sherbet nose with lime candies and lavender. Piney juniper, coriander seed and zesty lemon play together harmoniously on the palate. Nice viscous mouthfeel and a sweet finish that is clean rather than cloying.
