Monkey 47 Gin - Rare but True Admittedly, it appears somewhat eccentric to claim that a recipe for gin has the power to unite great British traditions, the exoticness of India, and the purity and nativeness of the Black Forest. And yet it is precisely this eccentricity that defines the enigmatic character of Montgomery Collins, from whom our Schwarzwald Dry Gin originates. A good third of the 47 botanicals for this special gin come from the Black Forest and are definitely not what you would call typical gin flavorings! These handpicked ingredients, prepared in extremely soft spring water from our own Black Forest source, give the unrivaled complexity and quality to MONKEY 47, whose piece de resistance is the use of local cranberries as some sort of "secret weapon" typical to the Black Forest. Whether with tonic, as a sling, martini, or gimlet, the unique and complex taste of Monkey 47 is an ideal basis for both classics and more eccentric cocktails. Monkey 47 & Tonic: 50ml Monkey 47 Dry Gin, equal parts Tonic & Soda Water, garnish with a grapefruit peel.
With the distinct and pure scent of juniper, a tangy and crisp citrus note, a sweet, floral aroma, a hint of peppery spices, subtle bitter fruit, and a deep and harmoniously balanced complexity with a tremendously racy finish
