Malfy Gin is packaged in a glass bottle screen-printed with an artistic expression of lemon peels and overlaid with a sea-blue label representative of the Mediterranean. Malfy’s stopper is crafted from Italian oak. The gin is distilled in the Vergnano family’s traditional vacuum still and is bottled at 41% alcohol by volume.
Following its debut in the U.S., Malfy Gin will soon be available in Europe, Australia and a number of other countries.
