Top 5 Gin Under $50
1.

Monkey 47

Schwarzwald Dry Gin

A cult-like Gin. Monkey 47 is distilled by Christoph Keller for Alexander Stein of Black Forest Distillers. Monkey 47 is very much a novelty within the Gin Universe, unique because of its low production and a real difference in style and taste.    Monkey 47 Schwarzwald Gin is obtained by double distillation of sugar beet molasses and a third distillation with botanicals, aged in clay pots. Made with 47 botanicals and bottled at 47%, they also use a secret weapon typical to the Black Forest in the mix - lingonberries. It's become almost a cult like Gin over the recent years and in case you haven't had a taste of this flavor bomb, we can give you nothing else but a recommendation of the highest order!  An extraordinary Gin. Period.

Suntory

Roku Gin

A journey through the four seasons with six botanicals. Global spirits giant Beam Suntory first announced plans to launch Roku Gin in May 2017. Produced at its Osaka-based distillery, Roku (meaning ‘six’ in Japanese), is based on more than 100 years’ knowledge of distilling. Shinjiro Torii, Founder of Suntory, opened his distillery in 1899, and launched Hermes Gin (Suntory’s first Gin brand) in 1936. Torii’s successors have continued to create world-renowned spirits built on a heritage of distilling. Roku Gin is a Japanese craft Gin featuring six Japanese botanicals (hence the name); sakura flowers and leaves, sencha and gyokuro teas, sansho pepper and yuzu peel. These special ingredients are harvested at their peak throughout the four seasons, creating a year-round sense of Japan. These distinctive botanicals are distilled individually (via vacuum distillation or by pot distillation) in order to draw out the best flavor and preserve the individual characteristics. Delicate cherry blossom flavors are drawn out through vacuum distillation in a stainless steel still, whereas more punchy flavors, like the citrus fruit yuzu, are created in a traditional copper pot still. The six distillates are then combined with eight traditional Gin botanicals (juniper, coriander, angelica seed and root, cinnamon, cardamom, bitter orange and lemon peel) to create a balanced flavor of classic Gin with a Japanese twist. A true taste of East meets West.

Elephant

Gin

Gin saves the elephants.   This custom made artisan Gin is inspired by Africa for Africa. This Gin comes from the hearts and minds of a handful of German enthusiasts, who donate 15 per cent of all their profits to help save the endangered African elephants.    The Elephant Gin is made from 14 handpicked botanicals, collected from across the World. From African Baobab and Devil’s Claw to French lavender and Salzburger mountain pine needles. The botanicals give the Elephant Gin a set of truly unique notes. Produced in small batches in the traditional copper still, the distillate is combined with local spring water, fresh apples and other carefully selected elements that comprise all of exotica.   Remember, for each sip you take, you will contribute a fair share towards saving the largest walking mammal on earth. Now that's what we call philanthropy.

Dingle

Original Gin

A unique Gin made within the tradition of Gin distilling with a note of innovation. The Dingle Distillery was launched in 2012 by three friends — Oliver Hughes, Liam LaHart and Peter Mosley — all of them veterans and pioneers of the Craft Beer revolution. As with many new producers, their budding Whiskey distillery began making Gin and Vodka while waiting for their Whiskey to mature. When Dingle started up in 2012, there were just two distilleries in Ireland, a country that once had more than 100. The founders wanted to create a new, artisan distillery to take on the big Irish brands. Dingle Original Gin is styled on a traditional London Dry Gin, but its unique botanicals give it a certain Irish flair. The "World's Best Gin" and the "World's Best London Dry Gin" for 2019 is made in a traditional copper pot still via two different distillation methods; first the botanicals are macerated in the neutral Spirit for 24 hours before being heated. The fumes then travel up the swan’s neck of the still, through a flavor basket which contains more botanicals, before condensing and being cut to bottling strength with fresh water from the distillery’s well. Locally foraged botanicals, including rowan berry, fuschia, bog myrtle, hawthorn and heather give a true taste of the County Kerry landscape. This Irish beauty is well-balanced with a floral flavor and clean finish. Try it served with a wedge of orange and a few juniper berries to bring out the piney flavors.

Sipsmith

London Dry Gin

A quintessentially classic London Dry Gin that would stand the test of time. Flaviar community agrees: Sipsmith London Dry was the winner of the Flaviar Community Award 2017 in its respective category! Sipsmith represents a collective of purist craft distillers, whose take on classic London Dry Gin is one of the very best you can possibly get. Anywhere. Sipsmith’s Distillery is based in Hammersmith, London in the same building that was home to Michael Jackson (the one esteemed for his Whisky expertise, not moonwalking) and a microbrewery. This historic site’s use has been resurrected by Sipsmiths Fairfax, Sam and Jared and blessed with a coppery soul, the beautiful Lady Prudence still. Prudence is a traditional copper pot still that can distill both Vodka and Gin — made by the Christian Carl family in Germany, she’s a rather special lady. They were the first to launch under licence in London, some 200 years ago. Jared Brown, Sipsmith master distiller, crafts each product personally, in batches never larger than 500 bottles a time. The outcome is a truly stunning Spirit — smooth, full of character and true intensity of flavor. They source the finest English Barley for their London Dry Gin and spices it up with 10 carefully selected botanicals. Finally, the heart is blended with exceptionally pure water of Lydwell spring, one of River Thames’ sources. The final product is a very sophisticated interpretation of the classic London Dry Gin style. Sounds damned mouth-watering. With a flavor imagination like this, it's no wonder that Sipsmiths created a Gin that's perfect for mixing and general playfulness — make sure you don't miss out on it! Cocktail know-how:   Bee's Knees Honey and ginger combine for a refreshing and zingy Gin sour. Balance — the perfect parity of sweet and sour — is key here, so all the ingredients mesh without any one flavor dominating.   - 1 1/2 ounces / 50 ml of Dry Gin - 3/4 ounce / 25 ml of strained, freshly squeezed lemon juice - 3/4 ounce / 25 ml of honey syrup (1/2 cup warm water mixed with 1/2 cup honey, acacia or wildflower) - orange twist, for garnish    1. Combine the Gin, lemon juice, and honey syrup in a cocktail shaker, fill the shaker three-quarters full with ice cubes,and shake vigorously until thoroughly chilled, 15 seconds. 2. Strain into a martini glass and garnish with the orange twist.
