Pernod Ricard acquires Malfy

Pernod Ricard has announced the signing of an agreement with Biggar & Leith for the acquisition of the Italian super-premium gin brand Malfy.

Malfy is a range of super-premium gins distilled by the Vergnano family in the Italian region of Moncalieri and is already present in several international markets such as the US, UK and Germany. 

Each gin in the Malfy range is distilled using Italian ingredients and includes four different variants: Originale, Con Limone, Con Arancia and Gin Rosa. 

“This acquisition is true to our long-standing strategy of investing in brands with strong potential in growing categories,” said Christian Porta, managing director of global business development of Pernod Ricard. “In line with the launch of our “Transform and Accelerate” strategic plan, we will continue actively managing our fantastic portfolio of brands.”

The transaction is expected to close shortly and the finances have yet to be disclosed.
