Incomparable complexity and quality by the use of 47 hand-graded vegetable ingredients, extremely soft Black Forest spring water as well as – and this is the whole point – fresh cranberries. In a masterly manner distilled and matured in traditional earthenware vessels. The eccentric formula of the original inventor of the Black Forest Dry Gin, Montgomery Collins, is the basis for Monkey 47. Its childhood as a diplomat son in Eastern Asia, its military career in the destroyed Berlin and the late adopted country in the Black Forest form the autobiographical background for a formula which represents a foolhardy combination from indigenous herbs and berries of the Black Forest as well as exotic botanicals from the Asian room.
Cranberry in colour. The bouquet is large, fresh. Wild sloes broadcast a showcase of grenadine and mixed rosemary. It operates in the peach and red fruit jam (strawberry, raspberry, cherry). Floral, it grows on orange blossom, lilac purple and lavender. The palate is delicate, fluffy. A thin film composed of fresh nuts and gentian root coats initially eyeballs. Then she went to find some freshness in the shade of pines and chestnuts. Hints of moss and green grass gradually cover the aftertaste. The finish is long and balanced. Marked in turn by notes of undergrowth (mushroom compost), it proposes to taste black fruit (blueberry, blackberry) and vanilla. Minty, she is more spicy (pepper, cinnamon). The retro olfaction is juicy and fresh. The empty glass is heady, floral and jammy.
