About the Brand
Basque brewer Mala Gissona is based in San Sebastian. Inspired by the local seafarers, they are particually drawn to the Basque whalers who have ventured around Iceland since, at least, 1412.
Links extended to the sailors and Icelanders developing a common ‘pidgin’ language.
“For ju Mala Gissona” is believed to be the commonly used expression in Iceland to refer to the Basque whalers. It translates as “You’re a bad man” but is an Icelandic slang term given to rough types, even rogues, at first impression, but who then prove to be honest, determined and loyal to their friends.
