Monkey 47 Bottling Note

An unusual gin from the Black Forest in Germany, Monkey 47 contains a unique ingredient. No, not that! Cranberries! The 47 comes from the number of botanicals that go into this unique gin, and the fact it's bottled at a healthy 47%.

This plethora of ingredients has paid off, and in 2011 Monkey 47 won the World Spirits Award Gold in the Gin category and Gold for best in class for the Gin Worldwide at the International Wine and Spirits Competition London. Not bad!

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Oh there is a lot going on here... woody, vegetable smells under pin fresh grassy citrus notes and botanical sweetness, like a pine forest after the rain.

Palate: Predictably complex, this is a robust and powerful gin with plenty of spice, fruit and herb flavours. It's very well structured, and difficult to unpick but a citrus fresh start segues into pine and wood notes for a drying finish.

Finish: Wooded and reassuringly heavy.

Overall: A unique gin, that is crying out to be made into a Martini. It'll need an equally robust vermouth though.

Superb

Found this in a little shop in Monterey. Wonderful.

Sublime

In my humble opinion this is the best gin in the world, and I have tried a lot.

Over the moon

King of New Orleans

Best martini I ever had. Who Dats love the monkey!!!!!

24th December 2015

My tears...

...are still swelling...so beautiful...in a garden filled with lavender and juniper...on a meadow - pines leaning over it...just empty a glass...smell the residue...pure heaven on earth...there's nothing like it... And: You shall not mix it! Ever!

LOVED IT!!!!!!!

Big A

Undoubtably the best martini I've made. Been a big sapphire fan, but now my taste buds are compromised. May need a second job to afford it however.

5th December 2015

Gin man

Bottle caught my eye in a local pub in southern Germany. Bartender gave me a free sample. I bought a bottle from him on the spot. Best gin I have ever had!

27th November 2015

The new standard

First tried the Monkey in Spain this spring and was immediately smitten. Pricey but worth it.

24th November 2015

Hard to get but worth the hunt

Love this crafted gin. It's an u usual botanical mixture but it is so well balanced.

18th November 2015

Glen & Janey

The most amazing Gin we sampled in Bath at the Canary Gin Bar .......... and we sampled about 30! We're hooked!!!

Jane Hogarth

Best gin I have tasted

31st October 2015

Mr Sell

Tried to carry out a non-scientific test to find the best gin in the world, still working my through them all, but Monkey 47 is by far the best so far. Just can't get enough of it.

7th October 2015

Cheeky Little Monkey

This is the best European gin outside UK in my opinion.
A cheeky surprise of flavours and a musky gin that never fails to make me smile.
Perfect with deep chilled fevertree and nothing else.

24th August 2015

WOW!!

One evening at a local Inn, the bottle caught my attention. We asked the bartender what it was. One smell and we were spellbound. Best gin ever. Ran out to get our own bottle and have been hooked ever since. Terrific

21st August 2015

Best Gin for so fare

I tryed many many gins but this one is my favorite....
dry and it tastes like you bite in the forest ground.

14th August 2015

Floral & Herbaceous

Huge WOW factor! Complex and busy at first (on the rocks) mellowing with dilution. SUPERB

6th August 2015

Good

Very nice

5th August 2015

Lin MacDonald

a wonderful gin. Smooth, dry and very, very tasty!

29th June 2015

Worth the money

best gin in the world.

19th June 2015

Yummy

Best tasting gin i have ever had in 50 yrs of imbibing the nectar,unfortunately my wife also like it so less for me now.
great just on the rocks.Why put tonic in it and mask the flavours.Tonic is for supermarket gins.

11th May 2015

Unreal

Tried this last night for the 1st time and it was absolutely incredible. Probably the best Gin i've tried to date. Wholly recommended.

30th April 2015

Great gin and perfect tonic

tried this gin in Berlin - great gin and tastes best with Thomas Henry tonic

16th April 2015

!!!!

Probably the best gin ever. I like Tanqueray10 and Oxley but this has to be the best. Fevertree tonic and a twist of lime - sublime.

12th April 2015

Monkey 47

Delicious flavour, introduced with a bottle by a German friend, great find!

11th April 2015

Amazing gin

Wow!

This gin is quite simply one of the nicest I have tasted!! With a slimline tonic it is a classic combination in which all flavours are complimented.

9th April 2015

Monkey 47 - best gin

I had this when I went to a decent UK restaurant. It totally blew my mind. This is the best gin I've ever had. It goes well with the traditional tonic, or vermouth, or a bit of plum, or even just with a little ice - it's heavy enough to hold up by itself. And it is unique, cannot recommend enough.

6th April 2015

Cheeky Monkey 47

I have tried many a Gin, but none compare to this! I couldn't quite make out initially what I was smelling but I felt like I was sitting out in a meadow on a Spring day. This Gin is an absolute delight to drink. Beautiful, refreshing, intense. My favourite, definitely. If you like Gin, you must try this!

Monkey 47 at Ruby Jacks Tokyo

I had the pleasure to enjoy a martini made with Monkey 47 with fabulous friends at Ruby Jacks in Tokyo.
It was our first experience with Monkey 47. Absolutely the best of the best!

Wow

This is the best tasting gin ever, fresh and viberent, thanks to the bartender at the Courtyard in Switzerland for my new drink.

Monkey 47

1st February 2015

Karenj

Fantastic ! I tasted it "raw" beautiful! The smell of freshness, vanilla? And unarmed herbs was a great surprise. Loved it

17th January 2015

Stop monkeying around

my second favourite gin after william chase extra dry. try with a stick of rosemary

30th December 2014

I Love This Gin

I first tried this gin at Eat Street Social in Minneapolis, MN and I instantly fell in love and had to go buy myself a bottle. It makes the best gin Old-Fashioned I've ever had.

26th November 2014

Wish you could get it in Canada!!!

New favourite after being introduced to it by a German friend. Need to find a way to get this to the LCBO!

4th October 2014

Wow!

Drink with Pedrino tonic for the most exquisite G and T. Nothing like it!

3rd October 2014

What a Gin!

Superb! One of the smoothest gins I have ever tasted ..... Definitely best taken with simply ice and perhaps a few leaves of mint or slices of cucumber. Would suggest not adding tonic of any kind to it (even Fever Tree!) .New Favourite Gin!

1st August 2014

intriguing flavour

I tried this in a gin bar in bath and have finally hunted down a bottle of it for myself! I like it with a sugar free tonic water and lots of ice, you don't want anything to interfere with the flavours here. It's a really fab drink!

1st August 2014

Loved it in Barcelona, on a quest for it in the US

Barcelona has a very big gin scene and this was one of many, many gins I drank. It was my hands down favorite and I highly recommend it.

29th June 2014

Wunderbar!

The best gin I've ever tasted, also. I mix it with one cube of ice, freeze the bottle or put a touch of excellent water with it to open the character up.

9th June 2014

Can't get enough of it!

We expanded our gin range at our establishment and I ordered this on the strength of the below reviews...the first bottle was emptied in two days! After trying it neat and in a G&T, I have to agree that it is the top 5 best gins I have come across!

23rd May 2014

The Best!

Best gin I have had. Just returned from a trip to Southern Germany, including the Schwarzwald region and had the opportunity to try this. Simply better than any gin I have had to date.

19th May 2014

Makes me proud...

Discovered Monkey 47 on my Uncles bar while visiting back home in Austria. Superb and one of a kind!!!

29th March 2014

Monkey47

best gin discovered so far

10th March 2014

Superb gin

One of the best I have had, and my current favourite. The type of gin where you want to drink the whole bottle in one sitting, but you know you'll be sad when it's gone. Has a lovely aroma. It's a shame the bottle is so small!

23rd January 2014

tony nm

First tried it in Cambodia, the bottle was removed from me as I would have sat there drinking it all. It must be the best Gin available especially when drinking it neat.Thankyou

21st January 2014

Mr Grinch

Tried this I'm Germany and wow is all I can say. Not a gin lover until I tried this monkey 47 mixed with fentimans tonic for perfection

25th December 2013

D m

The best ever absolutely love it

12th December 2013

Ooooohhhhhh yes!

Wow ...this was bought as a present and crumbs it's good ....not at all harsh....my new best friend.

24th July 2013

New favourite

My partner was so impressed by Monkey 47, he brought the empty bottle back from Frankfurt. One sniff of what was left, and I was hooked. Thank goodness we found a UK distributor. This gin is surprising, bold, complex and uncompromising. Pair it with Fever Tree, and there is nothing like it. Simply, the best.

9th June 2013

Blown away - so smooth

Absolutely amazing gin. Unforgettable with a good quality tonic - no ice - in a tall tasting glass. Had this gem before a meal of seafood - perfect.

Extremely nice presentation also - looks great as a valuable addition to a home bar

23rd April 2013

Dream gin

I first tried this gin about a year ago in Barcelona and fell in love with it. I brought back to bottles to Canada where it is unfortunately not available (I'm working on that).

This is by far the most complex gin I have tasted and definitely a welcome addition to any liquor cabinet.

Agreed with the comment above about the pairing with Fever Tree...

21st April 2013

Astonishing

This is amazing! A real intrigue tasted straight and just perfect with Fentimans tonic.

8th February 2013

What a gin...

Fascinating taken straight, but i definately reccommend in a collins with a touch of cranberry juice to bring out the sweetness. In fact, this gin is sensational with just cranberry juice alone!

27th November 2012

probably the best gin in the world

first tasted in Brugges and blown away.
a complex and inviting taste sensation.
Great with fever tree tonic and fresh lime.
