One spirit I haven’t written about yet is gin. Clean, crisp, and refreshing, it’s versatile and a great alternative for those who aren’t fond of vodka. And since Negroni Week continues through Sunday at participating O.C. restaurants, the timing couldn’t be better for introducing you to a new product that’s got my attention. It’s called Malfy Gin, and it’s the first luxury Italian gin to be imported to the states—and a tasty reason for enjoying a Negroni at home.
Made in a family-run distillery in Moncalieri by the Vergnano family, it’s infused with the classic combination of juniper and five other botanicals, but sets itself apart with the infusion of lemons from the Amalfi coast—which gives it a fresh and zesty taste and aroma. It doesn’t hurt that it comes in a gorgeous bottle.
Lucky for us we live in just one of 10 states where it’s available. So grab a bottle for your weekend at Young’s Market in Tustin ($30 for 750 ml). Happy Sipping!
