About Monkey 47 Schwarzwald Dry Gin

The Black Forest area is famous for producing some of the world's finest fruit liqueurs. When Commander Montgomery "Monty" Collins of the Royal Air Force was discharged in 1951 and moved to the area, he perfected the recipe for his very own gin, which became the signature spirit served at The Wild Monkey until the 1970s. Upon hearing this story, Alexander Stein set out to replicate the mythical spirit, using botanicals from the Black Forest and India. A whopping 47 botanicals in total go into Monkey 47 Schwarzwald Gin, including lingonberries, hand-peeled citrus fruits, herbs, flowers, and spices. While the sheer botanical count screams "contemporary," the distilling methods are rooted in tradition. It's this blend of modernity and tradition that has made Monkey 47 so beloved, earning the spirit critical acclaim and a devoted fan base.

About Monkey 47

After serving honorably in World War II, Commander Montgomery "Monty" Collins of the Royal Air Force was discharged in 1951 and moved to the Northern Black Forest where he opened a country guest home nicknamed "The Wild Monkey." The Black Forest area is notorious for producing some of the world's finest fruit liqueurs, and so Collins eventually began experimenting with distillation. In time, he perfected the recipe for his very own gin, which became the signature spirit served at The Wild Monkey until the 1970s.

"When I heard about a special gin that contains classical spices and also ingredients from the Black Forest such as spruce shoots and lingonberries, I left my job and began doing research with the aim of bringing this gin back to life," says Alexander Stein, who resurrected Collins' gin. After two years of research and development, Stein, together with master distiller Christoph Keller, settled on a recipe that called for 47 unique ingredients. The ingredients include acacia, acorus, calamus, almond, angelica, bitter orange, blackberry, cardamom, cassia, chamomile, cinnamon, citron verbena, cloves, coriander, cranberries, cubeb, dog rose, elderflower, ginger, grains of paradise, hawthorn berries, hibiscus abelmoshus, hibiscus syriacus, honeysuckle, jasmine, kaffir lime, lavender, lemon, lemon balm, lemongrass, licorice, lingonberries, mondara didyma, nutmeg, orris, pimento, pomelo, rosehip, sage, sloe, and spruce.

About Gin

According to Winston Churchill, "The gin and tonic has saved more Englishmen's lives and minds than all the doctors in the Empire," referring to the British officers using it to treat malaria in India.


Initially made for medicinal purposes, gin gets most of its flavor from the juniper berries added after the distillation process. It sure has come a long way from the Middle Ages, with the introduction of new botanicals, fruits, and spices, bringing it closer to people of all flavor varieties.
