All about making whisky
Monkey 47 Sloe Gin is a gin-based liqueur with cult status in the Black Forest. Following maceration with blackthorn fruit, it is left to rest for three months before being bottled at 29%. Fresh and fruity, it reveals notes of juniper and almond and boasts great complexity. A premium sloe gin!
Boasting remarkable elegance and fruity precision, this sloe gin made by Alexander Stein in his distillery in the Black Forest is the product of wild blackthorn fruits macerated in Monkey 47 gin. The gin is bottled after having been left to rest for three months to ensure perfect osmosis between the gin and the fruit. A sloe gin dear to our hearts. Profile: full-bodied, fresh. Wild sloes. Mixed grenadine and rosemary. Vine peaches and red berry jams (strawberry, raspberry, Morello cherry). Orange blossom, lilac and lavender.
The origins of Monkey 47 date back to the 1950s, during which time a British commander of the Royal Air Force, Montgomery Collins, who was posted in Germany, decided to create his own gin, which he named “Max the Monkey – Schwarzwald Dry Gin”. The name was a reference to Max – a monkey he had adopted at Berlin zoo, which was at the time in the midst of serious renovation works – and the Black Forest site at which the gin was produced. In 2008, Alexander Stein decided to recreate this gin, which had been rediscovered in the 1960s, and set up the Black Forest distillery... In tribute to Captain Montgomery Collins, his monkey Max and the 47 botanics used in its production, Alexander Stein named his gin MONKEY 47.
