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.

    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!

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

    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!

    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


    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


    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!

    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

    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 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


    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.
