Product description +
A curious gin from Monkey 47, produced in Germany's Schwarzwald – also known as the Black Forest – and made with an impressive combination of no less than 47 botanicals. This medley of ingredients includes fruits and herbs that are native to the Black Forest, as well as exotic Asian botanicals, including elderberries, mint, almonds, jasmine, ginger, Vervain and camomile, to name a few. Understandably complex, the palate finds a delicate balance between notes of juniper, citrus, sweet flowers, bitter fruit and peppery spices that lends itself well to use in cocktails such as Martinis and Gimlets, as well as being mixed with tonic and garnished with a slice of orange.
Nose - Oh there is a lot going on here... woody, vegetable smells under pin fresh grassy citrus notes and botanical sweetness, like a pine forest after the rain.
Palate - Predictably complex, this is a robust and powerful gin with plenty of spice, fruit and herb flavours. It's very well structured, and difficult to unpick but a citrus fresh start segues into pine and wood notes for a drying finish.
Finish - Wooded and reassuringly heavy.
About Monkey 47
Through masterly distillation and maturing in traditional earthenware containers, the goodness of all 47 hand-picked ingredients is brought fully to bear. Admittedly, it appears somewhat eccentric to claim that a recipe for Gin has the power to unite great British traditions, with the spices of India, and the rich landscape of the Black Forest. And yet it is precisely this eccentricity that defines the enigmatic venturesome character of Montgomery Collins, from whom our Schwarzwald Dry Gin originates. Aficionados, bartenders and connoisseurs the world over have come to appreciate the incredible complexity and harmony of a gin, which has consistently been voted the No.1 Top Trending Gin brand in the World's Best Bars.
