Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and crisp
Clear colour. Beautiful, straightforward and fresh nose of menthol, cumin and genepi. Beautiful balance on a full-bodied, wrapped Gin, roundness, finesse, notes of cumin, clove, hint of resinous. Beautiful, straightforward and elegant finish.
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.
Do you know ?
The name Monkey 47, in homage to Montgomery Collins' mascot and the 47 aromatic plants that compose it.
Domain and appellation
The idea of creating a gin in the pure English tradition in the heart of the Black Forest in Germany was born in the 1950s from the eccentric imagination of an expatriate British officer, Montgomery Collins. This Shwarzwald Dry Gin is made in Germany in the heart of the Black Forest at the Wild Monkey Distillery and is made from 47 different botanicals, distilled in 4 small hybrid carterhead stills (iron stills with rectifying columns) and aged in earthenware jars for 100 days.
