Monkey 47 Schwarzwald Dry Gin

Monkey 47 Schwarzwald Dry Gin is produced in Germany's Black Forest

Germany checks in with an outstanding example of what quality ingredients can become in the hand of a master distiller.

Schwarzwald's version does not monkey around, using six different types of pepper, plus a mind boggling medley of botanicals, including acacia, angelica and spruce. This potpourri is elegantly steeped in French molasses alcohol for 36 hours prior to distillation. The resulting spirit then rests for three months in earthenware before the initial cut. All this skill and effort produces a worthy gin with indelible aromas of forest, ginger, hibiscus, jasmine, lime and sage with a hint of rose. The palate explodes with rare complexity. The dominant spice, floral and fruitiness are enveloped in a piney embrace. Finishing with discernible weight, it delivers all the ingredients as if they were one.
