Monkey 47 Schwarzwald Sloe Gin : An unusual gin from the Black Forest in Germany. The 47 comes from the number of botanicals that go into this unique gin, and the fact it’s bottled at a healthy 25%. They also use a ‘secret weapon typical to the Black Forest’ in the mix – Cranberries.


Monkey 47 Schwarzwald Sloe Gin

The story of Monkey 47 is attributed to an Indian born British Commander who was stationed in Germany after the second world war. Inspired by the Black Forest through the lens of his family’s heritage he combined British influence, Indian botanicals, and the natural flora of the German forest to create a complex gin he called Schwarzwald Dry Gin, along with the note Max the Monkey. 

You see, this Commander also helped rebuild the world-famous Berlin zoo, and during the course of this he came to support Max, an egret monkey, who lived in the zoo. So it might seem natural that years after the fact in retirement, he retained an affection for the monkey he sponsored, and when he made his gin, he named it after him.

On botanicals alone, boasting an ostentatious 47, it might be the most complicated gin on the market, but to throw you one more curveball, it’s also built on a base spirit of molasses.
