Inspired by the Black Forest and India and with a whopping 47 botanicals, Monkey 47 Gin is brimming with flavour!
Having rediscovered the eccentric Wing Commander Montgomery Collins’ recipe for gin, some enterprising fellows at The Black Forest Distillery decided to give it a go and see what came of it. Luckily for them (and us), Monty’s recipe was spectacular and so in 2008 the gin went into production. Named for the Commander’s pet monkey, the number of botanicals used and it’s ABV%, Monkey 47 was born. A complex and flavoursome gin that, despite its vast plethora of botanicals, isn’t fussy; Monkey 47 is clean, dry and citrusy. A well-bodied gin with strong herbal and juniper notes, backed up by vivid lime.
