Monkey 47 Schwarzwald Dry Gin
The brand behind it all
Founded in 2010, Monkey 47 was born from a 1950s recipe by British Air Force Wing Commander Montgomery Collins in the Black Forest's "Wild Monkey" guesthouse. This recipe was created from the great Black Forest tradition of distilling fruit and – out of a longing for Collins' own British passions – gin. Monkey 47 contains only hand-picked ingredients. A number of them, including the peel of bitter oranges, lemons, and pomelos, have to be fresh off the fruit when added to the macerate prior to distillation. This requires the helping hands of hard-working locals who are willing to report for duty at seven o’clock every morning. Following meticulous sensory inspection, each ingredient is distilled using well-honed artisanal techniques and the softest local spring water, before being rested in traditional earthenware vessels, for a perfectly smooth gin.
