All about making whisky
Every year, Monkey 47 adds a new opus to its Distiller’s Cut special edition. This 2014 limited edition of 4,000 bottles offers a new recipe containing Oxalis triangularis (false shamrock). This unique ingredient was first discovered near Stuttgart by the master distiller Christoph Keller. After 12 months of maturation in terracotta containers, the plant gives the gin a fresh, tangy character, accompanied by floral and lemon notes. You will also love the complexity and remarkably subtle vegetal notes of Distiller’s Cut 2014.
A limited edition of 240 gift boxes.
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.
