Montgomery Collins, its creator, belonged to the Royal British Air Force and was posted to Germany where he met Max, a monkey who has become the brand’s emblem. There I experiment with many botanists until I reach today’s formula using nothing more and no less than 47 botanicals, who have placed it on the podium of the best gins in the world.

Let’s look at the analysis, reviews and opinions of this German gin.

Features of the world’s best gin

This drink carries in its elaboration a unique process that goes through three distillations and a maceration in traditional clay containers. Monkey 47 boasts of being the most botanical gin in the world than its brand suggests, add up to 47.

Of these botanicals stand out some of the area where it occurs such as pine shoots, hibiscus, raspberries and blueberries.

The bottle

Visually the drink is presented in a dark-colored glass bottle shaped round and flat similar to the medicinal jars of the last century and with a capacity of 70 cl. The bottle bears a square seal or label with the Max monkey in the center.

Tasting notes

On the nose it evokes subtle and scented notes with keffir lime, acidic red fruits and spicy notes.

On the palate it offers a range of very rich and tasty aromas with notes of peppers and flowers such as jasmine and elderflower, very scented citrus touches that alternate sweet and bitter and very interesting red fruit spots

The finish is slightly rough and sweet and encourages to continue with a second long drink.

Drinking Gin Monkey 47

Although the natural companion of gin is usually the tonic, in this case we have a different gin that looks for a fruity and sweet point to combine, so instead of the usual tonic that accompanies the gin, we can combine it with a soft drink of lime and lemon for example thus enhancing its most fruity side. An apple mixer also suits you very well.
