Because isn't that the whole point?
A curious gin from the Black Forest in Germany. Made with 47 (yes, really) botanicals and bottled at 47%, they also use a 'secret weapon typical to the Black Forest' in the mix – cranberries.View all products by Monkey 47
From way outside of London in the Black Forest of Germany comes Monkey 47 Dry Gin. Why 47? It's 47-proof and includes 47 ingredients. Many of them are traditional, but some are unexpected and obscure like cranberries and musk yarrow, which the Monkey team climbed the Munt da la Bêscha personally to pick.
Buckle your seatbelt and drink in the aroma. You'll be hit with a bomb of earthy, woodsy, vegetal notes with grass, citrus, spice and sweetness. The taste follows up on the promise the nose made. You'll get sweet, herby, bitter, citric and more before a long finish of pine and wood. The flavor keeps growing.
Make Monkey 47 Gin Martini, but rather than going extra dry or just in-and-out with the vermouth, go big. A gin this massive needs to be challenged, so use a 4:1 gin/vermouth ratio and think outside the box for garnishes. Consider cornichons, pickled mushrooms or dried berries. Another option is the Pegu Club Cocktail from Burma: four parts Monkey 47 Dry Gin with one-part orange curacao, a splash of lime juice and a dash of bitters. Shake it and serve it up.
