Hailing from Germany’s Black Forest, Monkey 47 is an exotic gin made with a molasses base. The 47 refers to the amount of botanicals used which includes such unlikely fruit ingredients like lingonberries, blackberries, and honey pomelo. Bottled at 47% ABV.
These are combined with a host of recognizable gin botanicals such as chamomile, sage, angelica, coriander, and a whole array of others. Another anomaly at Monkey 47 is that the distillate is aged in earthenware containers for three months before being brought to 47 degrees alcohol with the forest’s celebrated water.
