Monkey 47 ‘Schwarzwald’ Sloe Gin (500ml)
The great Monkey 47 Sloe Gin is a peppery, tangy, complex spirit made by macerating Black Forest sloes (dark berries) in spirit for three months. It offers rery aromatic and complex nose, with huge fruit notes and quite a good deal of juniper too. A mix of earthy, tangy juniper with rich, sweet red berries. Very refined and balanced.
Note: The gin is not fully filtered, so there are some berries sediment in the bottle.
About The Brand
Hailing from the Black Forest region in Central Germany Monkey 47 is an exotic gin made with a molasses base. The ‘47’ number refers to the amount of botanicals used ( such as unlikely fruit ingredients like lingonberries, blackberries, and honey pomelo), together with the alcohol level of 47.0%. These are combined with a host of recognizable gin botanicals such as chamomile, sage, angelica, coriander, and a whole array of others. Another anomaly at Monkey 47 is that the distillate is aged in earthenware containers for three months before being brought to 47 degrees alcohol with the forest’s celebrated water.
