A curious gin from the Black Forest in Germany. Made with 47(?!) botanicals and bottled at 47%, they also use a 'secret weapon typical to the Black Forest' in the mix - cranberries. IWSC 2011 Gold Medal Winner - Best in Class
Completely different to any other gin. I'd heard of it and finally found it in a bar in Hamburg over New Year. The night whizzed by and ended up consuming a bottle of the stuff to myself! Fantastic gin.

I drink all different kinds of gin, and Monkey 47 is by far my favorite. Unique and delicious flavor, goes well with most things(try it with a little cardamon...Expensive, so I only drink it every now and again, but definitely worth every penny.

Expensive......but you get what you pay for! Quite honestly the most amazing gin I have ever tried - I have mine neat (chilled) or with soda....any other way would be a waste imho. The only problem with it......once you've tried it, nothing else quite makes the mark!

Pretentious Gin - cool bottle though.

Bad News / Good News - adding Vermouth (even Noilly) to this gin is a waste....the fine textured layering of the (gins) flavours are lost....however - it makes the best Gin and Tonic I have ever tasted bar none. Superb - there is no other word for it

Had this in Berlin last week - I didn't think anything could beat Hendicks, but Monkey 47 is incredible stuff!

To the gentleman who got a bottle for fathers day - don't forget to post your views please. I have given this stuff even to people who don't like Gin (yes - such people exist)and they are all impressed. On Friday night I intend to try this in a Dry Martini - what this space............

Amazing - I have never tasted anything like this....when drunk straight the flavours are literally 'layered' on top of each and just go on releasing. Expensive but unique.....for anyone who likes Gin this is a must buy.
