Monkey 47

The small batch, handcrafted dry gin is a combination of 47 handpicked natural ingredients, macerated in pure molasses alcohol and soft, natural spring water, including botanicals such as lingonberries and an array of Asian botanicals. Several years ago, Alexander Stein, Founder and Managing Partner at Black Forest Distillers, learned of Commander Montgomery Collins, whose exotic and diverse background as the son of a diplomat in East Asia, a military man in Berlin and a quintessential British gentleman formed the inspiration for Monkey 47. Collins, who made a home in Germany’s Black Forest, crafted a gin recipe with 47 natural ingredients, including local lingonberries and Asian botanicals. His original Schwarzwald (Black Forest) Gin recipe included mention of Max, the monkey Collins sponsored as part of helping to rebuild the Berlin Zoo. Stein worked with acclaimed Master Distiller Christoph Keller to fine-tune that recipe and create Monkey 47, first introduced in Germany in 2010. “We are delighted to add the ultra-quality dry gin, Monkey 47, to our portfolio. Monkey 47 is the rare but true combination of a handcrafted product with an authentic story, award-winning packaging and a perfectly balanced taste.”
