"Monkey 47 Gin – the greatest gin I have ever tasted" Robert Parker

Tasting note information
Now we’ve seen just about everything. We’ve had English fizz, fine red wine from the Lebanon, vodka made from milk and now a boutique gin from the Black Forest. And just wait until you try it – it’s very good indeed. Monkey 47 was conceived by an Englishman, Montgomery Collins. A diplomat’s son, he grew up in Asia among gin drinking colonials. After some years in post-war Berlin – where he helped rebuild the zoo and adopted a monkey named Max – ‘Monty’ opened a guesthouse, ‘The Wild Monkey', in the Black Forest. Here he found an ample supply of local botanicals and set about creating a gin that was a fusion of flavours from the Schwarzwald (Black Forest) and Asia. Perfect with tonic or as part of whichever gin cocktail wets your whistle.
