Since 2008, the Black Forest Distillers company has taken Montgomery Collins’s eccentric and unique recipe on board. The result of the distillation is a genuine Black Forest Dry Gin.
Monkey 47 draws on the extravagant recipe of Montgomery Collins, the original inventor of the Black Forest Dry Gin! It is a daring combination of local herbs and Black Forest berries on the one hand, and of exotic botanicals from Asia on the other. Monkey 47 reflects a biography and so it will scarcely be difficult for connoisseurs to recognize familiar flavours as well as foreign spices, which can be attributed to Collins’s childhood in India, for example.
A good third of the ingredients for this special gin come from the Black Forest, such as spruce shoots, cranberries, elderflowers, sloes and blackberry leaves, just to name a few. A total of 47 hand-picked herbal ingredients cut back in extremely soft spring water from our very own Black Forest spring, give Monkey 47 an unparalleled complexity and quality. The real highlight is the use of a real Black Forest “secret weapon” — fresh cranberries.
