Monkey 47

Monkey 47 gin has been created 60 years 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 a 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, pure spring water and a variety of special herbal ingredients.

Range and Tasting

Very attractive nose with typical London Dry characters with some slight spicy notes. Crisp and fresh on the nose and equally so in the mouth. Some tangy notes in the mouth add extra freshness to the traditional characters. Fairly complex. Good balance of all components and racy, fresh finish.(International Wine & Spirits Competition)
