An extraordinary Gin. Period.

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 grain 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 - cranberries.

Juniper berry is the main ingredient of Gin. They are usually picked wild by independent workers throughout Europe, and sold via distributors to the Gin makers of the world.

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes
 
Appearance / Color
Clear with a silvery, glycerous appearance.
 
Smell / Nose
Crisp and fresh on the nose. The initial perfumed burst is of sweet berry / juniper and assorted fresh citrus peel; further aeration releases pine needle, lavender and clove-like scents. Distinctive and somewhat unconventional, some tasters found the aromatics a little cologne like.
 
Taste / Palate
On the palate, this begins soft and glycerous, gradually building intensity, climaxing in an explosion of peppers; Mid palate is off dry and oily with juniper, lavender, pine needle and spice. Some tangy notes in the mouth add extra freshness to the traditional characters. Fairly complex.
 
Finish
Good balance of all components and racy, fresh finish, flavors persisting into the long, dry after taste.

Tom,
I'm normally not a gin drinker. Monkey 47 has changed that. The smooth, slightly fruity flavor has made me look for offbeat gin recipes.

Amazing Gin! Very rich flavour, herbaceous and even a bit spicy. Definitely my favourite for G&T and also great for many cocktails

One of the best tasting gins around. Best with fever tree Mediterranean tonic with lots of ice and no garnish. Really allows the flavours of the gin to shine, uninterrupted.

Hands down the most complex and delightful gin I have ever tasted. These ratings should go to 11 #spinaltap

Colin,
Has a great flavor that is quite intriguing. I do feel like this gin is a little persnickety with how you mix it into cocktails. I believe I may need more practice before trying to do anything more complex than a martini or gin & tonic.

Outstanding sipping gin, but probably not for newcomers to gin.

Graham,
Floral on the nose a sweet juniper pallet and a soft floral/juniper finish. Some gin can really turn me off, but I am going to have to recommend this one for those looking for a sipping gin.

I am no gin fan bit this one surprised me! Perhaps I like it because it's not all about Juniper.
