Monkey 47 is new in the world of gin. Not only is it unique for its low production, but the real difference lies in style and taste. Balanced and complex, it is a dry gin with an intense taste of juniper and citrus fruits and a long bitterish aftertaste.

The history of its name? A commander of the British Royal Air Force, Montgomery Collins, stationed in Germany, founded a domestic distillery in the Black Forest, with the intention of creating the perfect gin with the plants offered by the surrounding forest. Some time before, he had adopted a homeless monkey after a bombing had destroyed the Berlin Zoo.

In 2008 a Master Distiller accidentally bought Collins' house, found the recipe for his gin and decided to bring it to success. In homage to the Master Distiller, his monkey Max and the 47 plants used in the recipe, the new owner of the distillery decided to call the distillate Monkey 47.

Monkey 47 is obtained from the double distillation of wheat grains, followed by a third distillation with botanicals, and aged in earthenware containers. The annual production is only 2,500 bottles.
