Monkey 47

The Monkey 47 begins with the story of an old school British eccentric, Wing Commander Montgomery (“Monty’) Collins of the Royal Air Force and the legend of the gin recipe he left to be discovered along with a bottle of his gin and sketches of a monkey, apparently named Max.

Alexander Stein is responsible for bringing this story to life and establishing Black Forest Distillers GmbH to craft Monkey 47 Gin, named after the number of ingredients used and in honour of Max the monkey.

The small medicine/lab-like bottle has a stamp-like label complete with perforation marks top and bottom. It also has a very natty natural cork stopper with a stainless steel band around the middle of the cork preventing the cork from being driven home into the bottle so it sits proud, like a re-corked wine bottle.
