About this deal

In addition to this, each year the distillery releases a “Distiller’s Cut” – a one off limited edition focussed around highlighting a specific botanical. As well as the original Monkey 47 Schwarzwald Dry Gin, there are now a number of different Monkeys (a troop? This one is less tart than your usual sloe gin with notes of jammy red fruits, honey, baking spices and chocolate.

Keller combines traditional maceration and distillation techniques, as well as vapor infusing certain ingredients, to gather precise amounts of the more volatile botanicals and accentuate more sublime flavors. His efforts are honored by the team retaining 47 botanicals (most gins would be lucky to have 10 or 12 different ingredients), although possibly not the identical 47. Hogarth’s 1751 print Gin Lane depicts the nightmare caused by the gin craze (the Gin Act of 1751 began the fight against this “epidemic”). With Belgian beer and chocolate peppers (a type of pepper from northern India, which tastes like roasted cocoa)?Made to an old family recipe where sloes are steeped in Hayman’s Gin for several months before sugar is added. I should mention that although these mussels are found in Belgium, this is not Claude van Damme – different mussels from Brussels. juniper notes, but also imagine you’ve been dropped into a David Attenborough documentary, mid-winter, in the middle of a pristine, snow-drenched Scandinavian spruce/pine forest (although possibly the Black Forest might have been a better analogy).

As I type I have a Bombay Sapphire and tonic beside me, but last year I went on a “gin quest”, which included Monkey 47. Before we get to that stage, though, it is worth noting the positive boost gin received from its collaboration with tonic, with tonic’s component of quinine a key in the fight against malaria.Once created, the distilled spirit is rested for three months in earthenware containers and then cut to 47% ABV with soft water from the Black Forest, before being sealed in 500ml bottles.

I know that to many people, drinking straight gin is bizarre behaviour, but Hendrick’s definitely isn’t your usual gin. Sloe drupes are part of the plum family and are often confused with berries, but they are in fact a fruit.

Other reports suggest that he may have followed a local girl there, while yet other reports, which will appeal to the readership of this publication, suggest he had decided to become a watchmaker and set up in the Black Forest to realize his dream – sadly, he was apparently not best suited to horology in any form and soon gave up. Learn about the producer and the gins, fabulous trivia, more cocktail recipes than you’ll need to combat the longest isolation, stories, tidbits, good solid information, and much more. Sadly, that is part of the Experimentum Series, so I am unable to provide tasting notes, but how could you not love a gin made from mussels?

Tanqueray was considered exotic in the extreme, and then came Bombay Sapphire and the cucumber-infused Hendrick’s (I’m a big fan of Hendrick’s), which were almost alien. It sounds pretty straightforward with only three ingredients, yet there is a wide range of flavours available.

A few years later, he joined with the respected distiller, Keller, and this led to what I think just might be the world’s favorite cult gin just a decade or so later. Monkey 47 is a famous Dry Gin produced in the Black Forest region of Germany and has been on the Gin market since 2010.
