Monkey 47 Schwarzwald Dry Gin 50cl 47% vol. retrieves and updates the recipe for the gin made by the legendary air commander Montgomery "Monty" Collins. Winner in its category in the World Spirits Award and in the International Wine and Spirits of London, the gin has nothing more and nothing less than forty-seven botanists, in which surprises, above the others, the sour cranberry. p>
In 2006, Alexander Stein was in Detroit when he received a call from a German colleague. During the conversation, he learned the story of Air Commander Montgomery "Monty" Collins, the future grandfather of the Monkey 47 gin.
Fascinated by his story, in 2008 Stein leaves his job and returns to his native land with the aim of finding a master distiller who could turn his dream into reality.
The problem in recreating gin was to retrieve information from the original product, since the reports were very rudimentary and there were no complete recipes. Thanks to the descriptions of different witnesses and the recovery of key botanists such as spruce fruits and cranberries.

In a second, those from the Mediterranean; Juniper berries, which are more aromatic than the German and Tuscan. And finally; Six types of pepper, almond, angelica, acacia, calamus, lemon verbena, clove, cinnamon, cilantro, blueberries, elderberry, cubeba, ginger, grains of paradise, hawthorn berries, hibiscus, jasmine, honeysuckle, lime, lavender, lemon, licorice, mondara, nutmeg, lily, red pepper, grapefruit, rosehip, sage, blackthorn, spruce ...
