Monkey 47

£36.45 £73.74


47 ingredients have found their way into the Monkey 47 recipe. Including angelica root, acacia flowers, bramble leaves, lingon berries and spruce shoots all come from the Black Forest. They take juniper berries from the Mediterranean which are known to be more aromatic as they receive four to six weeks more sun than their Tuscan and German cousins.

Monkey 47 Gin -

The distilled spirit is rested three months in earthenware containers and then cut with soft water from the Black Forest, where it reacts with oxygen and develops a greater overall harmony and balance.. Bottled in 500ml, unfiltered in individual batches and a final ABV of 47%, lime cordial is the only way we can describe the smell. Lime is prevalent to taste also, but joined by a herbal juniper, spruce notes as well as hibiscus floral touches. Other botanicals ping in an out depending on if you add water, enjoy it with tonic or a different cocktail and citrus lingers on the finish too.

Monkey 47 Distiller's Cut 2014 -

Once a year, the good people at Black Forest Distillers push the boundaries of what is 'sensorially' feasible in terms of distillation to produce a small batch of limited edition gin, they call Distiller's Cut. Following the tradition of the previous three releases, Master Distiller, Christoph Keller, embarked upon the quest to find the 'specie rara' - a special ingredient - for the Monkey 47 Distiller's Cut. 2014 is oxalis triangularis (popularly known as the 'Purple Shamrock') - a red, three-leafed type of common sorrel, which not only stood out because of its vibrant purple colour but, above all else, caught their attention with its intense, penetrating tartness and fine floral, fruity flavour. There is only one specialist in Europe who produces this type of clover. Distiller's Cut 2014 is a refreshing, tangy gin with delicate vegetable notes and a uniquely complex character.
