In the 11th Century Italian monks mixed juniper berries and cuttings with other locally sourced ingredients to make their own, homemade spirit. Juniper has long been used medicinally, and the trees are native to (and flourish across) Italy. A collection of books compiled around 1055 under the name Compendium Salernita includes a recipe for a
tonic wine infused with juniper berries. This was the first reference to what we now think of as “Gin”.
MALFY Gin is from Italy made in a small family owned distillery in Moncalieri, just outside of Turin – the centre of world cocktail culture.
Distilled by the Vergnano Family who have been making wines and spirits for over 100 years at their small distillery, Torino Distillati.
