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
Had this gin at northcote! First time iv tried it and now I will not drink another gin! Great gin

Unusal taste really smooth, personlally thought was exellent with fever tree tonic, ice and nothing else. Best G&T ever.

Choose a great tonic (Fever tree) and pour into a lovely highball. Slice of Lime and you're done. Don't add anything that will compete with the subtle lavender taste. All of the above available on WE

No other gin touches it. All that needs to be added is some quality tonic and a touch of ice. Expensive but worth every penny.

This was bought as a present, it was greatly received and enjoyed very much! Our friend was extremely impressed by it.
- anonymous, 9th July
hugely complex flavours as could be expected from 47 botanicals but really a very excellent drink, made the best negroni I've ever had with it

Really shows the difference between good gin and normal gin! This is exquisite!
- J. Dixon, 9th July
Delightfully flavourful with a complex depth. A splendid gin in my book.

A very versatile gin, as it has enough going on to make a fantastic G&T, as well as the crisp and clean taste needed for a good martini.
Dry gin martinis with monkey 47, and a dash of quinine and cranberry bitters are phenomenal

This is definitely one of the best thing I'ver had the privilege of drinking. If I could replace my blood with it I would. Highly recommended.

Discovered this little beauty in Barcelona a couple of weeks ago. Top notch gin, the rest are a waste once you've tasted this .

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!

Tried this for the first time last night in Hamburg..Loved it
