Monkey 47 Schwarzwald Dry Gin 47% - 50cl

Monkey 47 is a magical gin from The Black Forest of Germany that contains 47 different botanicals and takes it provenance from a recipe created by a British expat in the 1940's named Montgomery Collins. Collins was a wing commander in the RAF before assisting with the rebuilding of Germany in the post war years, professionally he tried his hand it watch making once he'd settled in the the Black Forest but it turned out he was much better at gin making. This recipe (if you choose to believe the story..) has been lovingly recreated by ginthusiast Alexander Stein and has become a cult classic within the world of gin drinkers.

The Taste

This gin is as complex and exciting as you might expect from one bearing 47 botanicals, but while some may argue that less is more, this gin shows that with the right balance a wide palette of botanicals can work in harmony. The juniper is very much still the ring leader.

Acacia, Acorus Calamus, Almond, Angelica, Bitter Orange, Blackberry, Cardamom, Cassia, Chamomile, Cinnamon, Citron Verbena, Cloves, Coriander, Cranberries, Cubeb, Dog Rose, Elderflower, Ginger, Grains Of Paradise, Hawthorne Berries, Hibiscus Abelmoshus, Hibiscus Syriacus, Honeysuckle, Jasmine, Juniper, Kaffir Lime, Lavender, Lemon, Lemon Balm, Lemongrass, Licorice, Lingonberries, Mondara Didyma, Nutmeg, Orris, Pimento, Pomelo, Rose Hip, Sage, Sloe, Spruce...

How does Monkey 47 Schwarzwald Dry taste?


Juniper is clear but is framed by hints of cranberry and lime


An intricate web of flavours that includes the obligatory citrus and an elegant file of herbs and spices. Too many to put into words!


Much more of the same but with a clear juniper backbone.
