A small-batch gin made with spring water from the heart of the Black Forest in Germany. Monkey 47 was named in memory of Max the monkey and as a nod to the 47 botanicals used and the gin's alcohol volume. Bottled at 47%. (Bottle size 500ml)

Nose: Typical London Dry characters with some slight spicy notes. Crisp and fresh on the nose and equally so in the mouth.

Palate: Some tangy notes in the mouth add extra freshness to the traditional characters.

Finish: A racy, fresh finish.

The story of Monkey 47 is attributed to an Indian born British Commander who was stationed in Germany after the second world war. Inspired by the Black Forest, he created a gin he called Schwarzwald Dry Gin, along with the note Max the Monkey, named after Max, an egret monkey he came to support while helping rebuild the Berlin zoo.
