Monkey 47 Gin Review
Monkey 47 Gin is known for its complex blend of 47 botanicals that come together to create an exquisite taste. This gin comes from the Black Forest region of Germany and is distilled using a combination of traditional and modern techniques. The distillery uses a blend of juniper berries, local botanicals, and exotic ingredients from all over the world to create a unique flavour profile.
When opening the bottle, Monkey 47 has a crisp and clean aroma with hints of citrus and floral notes. The first sip is a burst of flavour with spicy juniper, followed by citrus and herbs. The finish is long and smooth, leaving behind a pleasant piney-like taste. Overall, this gin is well-balanced, and perfect for sipping or mixing in cocktails.
How to Serve Monkey 47 Gin
Monkey 47’s complex flavour profile makes it an excellent choice for cocktails. The gin pairs well with tonic water (for how to make our perfect G&T serve, see here) and citrus fruits. It also complements savoury flavours like thyme, and works well with cucumber too.
If you’re looking for a classic cocktail to mix with Monkey 47 Gin, try a Negroni. Simply mix equal parts gin, sweet vermouth, and Campari, and garnish with a thin bit of orange peel. The gin’s herbal notes perfectly balance the bitterness of the Campari, creating a deliciously smooth drink.
