Sloe Gin - Monkey 47

Wild sloes diffuse an exquisite fragrance of mixed grenadine and rosemary, vine peach and red fruit. Delicate palate. A fine film of fresh walnut and gentian initially coats the sloes. Then it moves on to find freshness in the shade of fir and chestnut trees. Notes of moss and green grass gradually cover the aftertaste. The long, well-balanced finish, is marked by notes of undergrowth (mushroom, loam), offers a taste of black fruits (blueberry, blackberry) and vanilla pods. Mentholated, it becomes increasingly spicy (pepper, cinnamon).

Monkey 47 Sloe Gin is a liqueur based on the cult Black Forest Gin. Following maceration with blackthorn fruit, it is left to rest for three months before being bottled at 29%.

The origins of Monkey 47 go back to the mid-50s, when a British Royal Air Force Commander, Montgomery Collins, stationed in Germany, decided to create his own gin, which he called "Max the Monkey - Schwarzwald Dry Gin". This was a reference to Max, a monkey he had adopted from the Berlin Zoo, which was under reconstruction at the time, and to the gin's production location, the Black Forest. In 2008, Alexander Stein decided to recreate the gin recipe found in the 1960s and created the Black Forest distillery... As a tribute to Commander Montgomery Collins, his monkey Max and the 47 botanicals used in the recipe, Alexander Stein named it MONKEY 47.
