This bottle isn't on our current list of Home Bar Essentials... but it could be. Add it to your wish list and let us know you want it!
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.

Hardcore Gin lovers say the word Martini should never be preceded by vodka, lobster or pomegranate. They say the original and only real Martini consists of Gin, vermouth & olives, period!

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.
 
Flavor / 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, flavours persisting into the long, dry after taste.

Jessica,
I loved this Gin! This is my top pick for Gin. It is so smooth and has the most delightful taste of juniper berries.

Best experience with dried lime wheel

Tom,
Fantastic with extra bitter tonic and a twist of orange and lemon peel. Hints of fruit and herbal without the big juniper (pine) taste.

My favorite gin ever!

Kenneth,
Have to admit the first time I had it was in a mixed drink, but the flavor really came through. Trying it on its own, it really is a fantastic gin, as others have said the Herbal, Sweet and Fruity notes really stand out in a way I love.

This is a clean crisp gin with subtle flavors and so smooth. This is only a 375ml bottle so pricey but very good.

This is the best gin I have had. I like it better than Hendricks, which I like a lot. Monkey 47 makes a Very Smooth Martini. The botanicals are do not over-power. I will buy this again and again.

The botanicals in this gin just led a parade of flavors through my mouth! So delightful and refreshing, I think I have a new favorite gin! What I really appreciated was the craftsmanship melding all these flavors, citrus and juniper and others, in such a way no single one really dominated the others but you could still taste the distinct different flavors as the gin flowed over the different taste area's on my tongue.
Patrick
Patrick,
Excellent gin. Smooth and fruity, not much juniper. Very nice. Love the flavors and would definitely buy again. Bottle size, meh, still delicious. Straight up, over rocks, G&T, martini, all good.

The size of the bottle was a BIG surprise. I thought it would have been a normal bottle and not a pint.

Be aware that this bottle is only 375ml. This used to be 500ml (for the same price)

Just loved it. Made a martini - surprising taste, quite different from your standard gin. Going to try it in a gin and tonic.
