Monkey 47

Monkey 47 gin was created more than 6 decades ago and is currently available in over 50 countries on four continents. This brand takes its name from its composition: 47 handpicked plant ingredients prepared in soft spring water from the Black Forest.

History and Know-How

Wing commander Montgomery “Monty” Colins was posted in Berlin after World War II and became devoted to the rebuilding of its Zoo, through which he came to sponsor an egret monkey by the name of Max. He then moved to the northern Black Forest region where he opened a country guesthouse, “The Wild Monkey”. Nostalgic of British long-standing traditions, chief among them a good glass of gin, he developed a natural and regional basis recipe of Black Forest gin: juniper, spring water and a variety of special herbal ingredients.
