The Departure walkthrough Tax and Duty Free Store at Malta International Airport features distinct shops-in-the-shop for diverse categories: a “World of Wine & Champagne” presenting a breathtaking choice of champagnes and wines; a “World of Cigars” with its own nine square-metre walk-in humidor; and a “World of Chocolate”, featuring a wide selection of confectionery, from premium open chocolate sold over the counter to multi-packs of chocolate for self-consumption. Another section features locally harvested and produced products. A large portion of the store is dedicated to the perfume & cosmetics category, which has very much grown in size.
In addition to the Tax and Duty Free Store, The Nuance Group proudly operates “Spirit of Malta”. This destination concept is the perfect place to browse when looking for a special gift or souvenir. The concept caters to tourists, business travellers and locals alike by offering top-quality ware such as hand-crafted glass, a variety of local wines and liquors, a good assortment of local food ranging from the traditional galletti and gbejniet to pate’s and olive oils, local confectionery like the traditional honey rings, nougat and carob sweets, or the typical Maltese cross in every variation. The store design evokes the unusual setting of a typical local Maltese limestone quarry, with limestone-covered walls and a light-blue ceiling reminiscent of the waves of the Mediterranean as well as a lightly clouded sky.
Savina products can be found both in the Departure walk through Tax and Duty Free Shop and The Spirit of Malta, with a vast range of the assortment.
